study on feb 18th

The weather forecasters promised warm temperatures on Feb 18th and a group of us went out.  I, for one, froze.  But the morning light was great and somehow the color in the sky stayed for an unusually long time.   After it faded, I turned to painting the tree.  I didn't title this study, because it's value to me is in the color harmonies.  As a painting, it falls short for me.  Look at the pinwheel in the tree. Admire how evenly spaced the branches are.  Oh, boy...

You have captured the winter light so beautifully, and in such a subtle way that my eyes keeps roaming around the canvas enjoying each bit!
