The Ski Trail

Sometimes what you are painting on helps to tell the story. This is painted on a gessoed wood panel. The wood texture can be discerned, and though unplanned, the grain seems to lend an added dimension.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, The Ski Trail, oil on 8x8 gessoed 1/2 " wood panel

I am amazed at how this other-worldly scene is so well painted.

Bravo! Way to use some red, too.

Beautiful, chilly glow! Is this the ski-in to Casey's corner of the Arctic?

Absolutely stunning, Celeste. I can smell the snow, a sense of danger in the air. Who might be lurking in the trees and why?

The texture of the wood adds so much to this painting.

Beautiful. Great mysterious light. This could also be named something like 'Slushy Night'. The wood texture could read as weedy growth, a path with beauty and discomfort.

Love the texture of the grain and love the painting!!
