Here in The Art Room, the final days of December will be dedicated to winter scenes by contemporary "Daily Painters". I'm starting things off with four terrific small snow scenes by U.K. artist Ken Devine

One thing I love about these paintings is the firework-like display of popping color in scenes that other artists may have interpreted more soberly. I also love his joyful approach to brushwork. It's as though he is saying- if painting isn't fun, why do it?

 I paint one study a day during the working week unless I'm ill, on holiday or dead. 
It's frustrating, challenging, messy and rewarding....usually in that order.
