Paintings of landscapes #4


Here is another painting of the ice on the shore of Lake Michigan. This painting features an “ice vent,” a volcanic-like structure that is an outlet for waves that get under the ice. The hole depicted was about four feet in diameter and the brown color around its circumference is from sand ejected by the waves which can blast quite high in the air.

The paint is applied very thickly using impasto medium and ground glass for a diversely textured surface. The texture of the ice, sand and snow is counterbalanced by a completely flat monotoned sky.

Here is a detail shot:

This painting is on a wood panel measuring 32″ x 40″.  More paintings can be found on my website
