I love the ice and snow that covers trees in winter. I started having problems while painting. I knew my work included elements and principles of art but I just lost my direction. I knew why I wanted to paint the scene and decided this was best done with the element, texture. Texture in painting can be actual or depicted. You can depict heavy snow covering trees without using thick paint strokes (impasto). I love painting with thick impasto strokes and you can see this on my image.

I really like the textures and colors in these paintings. The landscapes seem to be more powerful in your style than the figurative work from what I've seen so far. Keep at it!!!
