    Description

    “The Tempest” was inspired by the beautiful rolling hills surrounding the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. I completed this painting in my studio following a 3-day painting trip to the Ozarks, throughout which there were intermittent storms in the region, resulting in several lively and adventurous plein air painting sessions!

    I relished the opportunity to complete several plein air studies of the area as I attempted to capture the distinct atmospheric qualities and transitions in lighting as the changes occurred with the coming and going of the storms. When I completed this larger painting in my studio, the plein air studies from my trip were invaluable during the entire process, enabling me to capture the dynamic sky and dramatic atmosphere that I observed in nature.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
