Winter Woods

Oil on board
16 cm x 16 cm or 6 inches x 6 inches
Rain, rain, rain last night, rain this morning, then a little gap in the rain.  I am enjoying the winter woods, the mossy patina of dark trees, lacy branches smudging the grey skies, soft blankets of wet deep fallen leaves. I think this little project of mine is going to do me good, teaching me to look deeper and think more.  However,  finding better waterproofs is the top plan right now, I need to avoid painters soggy bottom syndrome!!

I like Muckboots a lot, warm waterproof and you can walk for miles on them.
