Winter of “04” Jim Gola, Artist

Winter of 04 

Winter of “04” has been hanging on one of my walls since that year. The more I look at it, I marvel at how little time it took to paint the picture. It is one of those minimalist paintings that seem to generate an emotion with very little color. I value this little work as much as many of my larger more extravagant efforts. The view was taken from the hillside access road to my home during a winter snowstorm of that period. It is unfortunate that a 92 pixel reproduction will not do justice to the subtle changes of color and texture on this canvas.

  1. Beautiful, it really captures the feel of a snowy day, not just the image. You can see the weight of snow on the trees.

  2. Bookbabie..
    Tks for compliment on such a small undertaking. You are right on what I attempted to capture, i.e, the (white out) emotion of the moment. My golfing umbrella came in very handy that day. Your site looks interesting, I will tag it and look at it more closely later. keep your pencil sharp!

    Hi Jim,

    A lovely piece of work. I really feel the cold in this quiet, snow laden landscape
