In a Blizzard just follow the piste markers.

Painting Description

Snow, snow and more snow. Icy cheeks, wind howling,  snow swirling. In a normal world this isn’t something you would pay good money to experience, but this is not a normal place.

Can’t see, all gone black and white, the world internalises as the outer disappears in a blow of dense snow clouds. If in doubt, follow the markers, just one after the other, its simple. When they disappear you are lost or the snow just got heavier.  Either way it means a great powder day tomorrow. All you have to do is find the next lift to get you to the top again and repeat. Can life get any simpler?

This is part of the collection of 10 of these mostly black and white ski paintings to bring the feelings of those special days back as best I can. Acrylic on paper with mount unframed 36cm x 48cm.

If you order from outside the UK they will be shipped without mount to keep shipping costs down. Please email for a shipping quote.

The Skiing Feeling Collection – When the mercury hits past extreme cold and the colours vaporise, ice burns your cheeks and snow stuffs up your coat and down your pants. Even the trees are shivering without their coat of colour. You know the place when you can’t see a bloody thing, could be no where and everywhere. Heavy snow total mist and deep powder on its way. Cold bleak blacks and whites but inside it glows and nothing beats it. Some might say these monochrome neutrals are sophisticated, more grown up than my usual colourful and crazy ski paintings….. but they are just cold, so snowy, past freezing that no colours are left, life sucked out, here in the bleak descending colds of a deep January blizzard, and yet somehow this is the fun we seek, madness gone past crazy to insane.
