Red and Gray Winter Sunset Madronas

This painting is going in a show of my work that I'm putting up today at PSCCU Credit Union in Vashon (Location: 9928 SW Bank Rd, Vashon, WA 98070)  A few years ago we had a snowfall in the yard and I happened to take a photo of the sun as it set just over Tahlequah.  The colors of the earth and the trees were all dark charcoal from the wetness of the snow with just a bit of red where the sun glowed through the trees.  You can't see the snow, but it influences the colors and the mood.
