Winter Before the Storm by L. Martel


This is a 16″ x 20″ oil on canvas painted in 2018. I found the inspiration for this painting from a photo in the newspaper. The photo was so small I could barely see the composition so a lot of this is composed by me. It was the feeling that the photo gave me that caught my attention. If you live in a northern climate you know when a storm is coming in the winter. There’s a stillness in the air and there’s a silence to the scene. I did the drawing for this painting awhile ago and finally got a chance to work on it. It is signed and dated.
