California snow landscape oil painting – Red Cabin – Mt Pinos

February 15th, 2009

“Red Cabin at Mt. Pinos”
12 x 16 oil on canvas
Available

We had another good rainstorm here in Los Angeles, which translates to snow in our higher mountains. I had been saving this painting for the next snowy occasion , so here it is. It’s a new one, of a cabin in the woods on Highway 95, through Fort Tejon National Park, northwest of L.A. on the slopes of Mt. Pinos.

I hear there’s another storm coming in a day or two. After that one passes we’ll probably make another snow trip, perhaps closer to home into the Angeles Crest National Forest.

Snow is interesting to paint because, being white, it picks up all the colors of the environment. When you look at this painting, there’s actually very little pure white in it. But it’s unmistakably snow, right?

  1. Great painting! You are right, snow is white yet there is very little white in this painting. I love the colors as this painting is much more vibrant than most of the “snow” paintings done. Excellent job.

  2. Your work just keeps getting better and better! I love this, I would like to live there. Great job on the snow shadows.

  3. Yay! snow! I’ve loved painting snow lately. Yours here has such a great powdery, almost velvety quality. And the cool shadows next to the warm grasses are really wonderful.

  4. No words can speak my reactions to your art. I am completely overwhelmed, just seeing it on the screen. To see it in person must be an experience unearthly. Certainly spiritual. Thank you.
