How I See It 22"x28" acrylic

I love this painting because it really is how I see it!  Lately a few people have asked me if I really see all those colors.  I frequently punch up the colors because I think it works and it makes me happy, but when I look out at the world...even on a very gray day, I just see color in everything if I look beyond my immediate impression and really see it.  A paraphrase from the "The Ideal Husband" (by Oscar Wilde) that I like is that there is a difference between looking and seeing.  This painting of a barn in the valley between mountains on a snowy day is close to where I live.

Me gusta, creo que debiera escribir un libro sobre pintura, en realidad sus conceptos son muy buenos

I love the atmosphere you achieved in this painting. The colors show that you see with the eyes of an artist.
