Spring Melt - FINALIST, February 2019Save Favorites
A mossy bank above some snowy rocks with a hint of the spring melt. I tried to capture the sense of mystery in the dark foreground relieved by the light on the snow.

Judge's Comment: "This painting succeeds with a good underlying drawing and effective balancing of space and color in a complex composition. Overlapping color washes morph magically into puddles, moss, shrubs and rocks, culminating in the image of a forested ravine that feels so much like a real hiking trail we've actually experienced."
