I started this painting about 2 years ago but set it aside, and I didn't foresee ever getting back to it. I hate not finishing paintings but from time to time I get stuck. In this one I got overwhelmed by all of the details in the reference photo like the ice on the water and land, and I wasn't sure how I wanted to handle all of the branches, which got lost when I painted in the sky anyway... So I hung it on the garage wall outside my studio for a couple of years and one day a few weeks ago I felt like I could figure it out, and was kind of excited to give it a try. So here it is.
