This small, square oil on canvas en plein air landscape painting was painted by Hudson Valley based artist, Judy Reynolds. The composition features a field in winter, layered with a creamy white blanket of snow. Old fence posts line the border and a forest of cedar trees are in the background. With a palette of delicate yellow, blue, grey, white, and brown the artist transports the viewer to the winter-time scene. Tall brown grasses appear in the foreground against a snow white field. A yellow sunset descends in the background. The scene appears to be just before sunset, as the warm yellow sunlight hues reflect off the cloudy blue skies and snowy white field. The brushwork is smooth as there is little texture built upon the canvas. Judy Reynolds signed the painting in the lower left corner in oil paint. The 8 x 8 canvas is complimented with a thick black frame, which measures 13.5 x 13.5 x 2 inches.
Primarily self-taught, I’ve created landscapes and still-life paintings in either oil or pastel medium for over 30 years. As a native of the Hudson Valley, most of my work is centered upon the Hudson River and surrounding mountains, fields, and marshes, but I’m also inspired by the dreamy marshlands in Maine. My favorite seasons to capture on canvas are late fall and early spring filled with sunsets, storm endings and foggy marshes, rich with the changing colors of the seasons.
