Drag Lift in a Snow Storm


In stock

Painting Description

Cold hands and cold face. It shouldn’t feel this good but it does. Slowly slowly dragging yourself up the mountain. Wind biting flakes fleeting past. In the land of black and white not much to see but the dream of the next track cut fresh through billowing fresh powder on a lonely mountain. If you have been on this drag you might just make out the cable car station top left which is nearly there just peaking out of the storm clouds.

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.
