52nd National Catalog


The painting Winter’s Kiss is inspired by a photo I took more than 30 years ago and have always wanted to paint. It brings me back to what I love about snow, the way the warm glistening light is captured and how the cool shadows reflect the blue sky on a sunny day. It’s from my backyard near where I used to feed the many birds that would frequent our yard. I always liked to watch the

house sparrows. Here, I placed a single male bird

watching the others in the

distance. I wanted to convey the peaceful beauty of the scene and reflect upon a fond memory. This painting is one of my favorites.
