Snowfall at Dusk—Cottonwood Grove

Brian Mahieu’s landscapes capture the ethereal effects of atmosphere and changing light at twilight, the predominant motif of his work for over thirty years. Since he paints entirely en plein air (in the open air) without any reworking in the studio, each of his paintings is a direct and fresh record of his experience at a particular place and time. This work was made during a snowfall that was so heavy that the snow mixed with his paint to produce a powdery and pockmarked surface.
