Winter Sky – acrylic on canvas, 30″ x 24″
Contemporary realism, still life, Houston, Texas, Rice University

I’ve been wanting to paint this scene for a long time. It was a challenge for me. Treetops in the distance. But I figured out how I wanted to paint them and am very pleased. This scene looks north along Main Street in Houston towards downtown. The red roofs are Rice University, as the piece of track in the lower left. This view is gone now. A building has been erected that obstructs this view. Glad I got it when I did.
