Impressionistic Oil Paintings

Press On! - Oil

Press On! is a very familiar winter scene.  I captured the reference photo for this painting while watching children sled down the hills in our local town.  Of course the fun is sledding down but to have that fun, one must climb back up the hill again.  I hope this painting brings back many memories of winter fun.
