Drawn during a cold spell (it didn’t get over freezing for several weeks). I draw these pastel abstractions laying flat on a table, and work without declaring a top or bottom until very near the end of the process, when I shift the canvas to an easel for the final touches.

This is one of three landscapes on canvas I did in the fall of 2012. Each was a different size, and I did them one a day over a three day period. Shortly after these were drawn Winter hit Ohio hard, and I haven’t yet done an outdoor landscape in 2013 (as of 4-6-2013).
