Inspired by a snowshoe walk around my friend Louisa’s field the morning after a heavy snowfall, I spent the winter months exploring the effects of light on the snowy landscape.  These three collages represent a lot of problem solving–from how to depict snow laying on the branches of a white pine to the effects of fading sunlight on a stand of pine trees.  The changing light and sharp contrast between snowy fields and the dark woods posed a wonderful challenge to my painted collage technique.
