Pansies in the Snow

Pansies in the Snow

6x8in oil on canvas board  100.

As the snow melted, the pansies perked right back up. I guess living in a little igloo suited them.
Pansies bring just the perfect burst of color during our winter and I really enjoy them.

Artist Note:
I used the knife and brush on this for some variations in texture. 
Including the snow in the painting  meant I had to work on a strong design linking the color and dark pattern to hold it together.
