(132) The Hill
6 x 6, oil
In order to get the "snowflakes" I thinned the paint with medium (Gamsol, linseed oil and stand oil) and then dipped an old toothbrush in it. Next, I thumbed through the bristles to flick the paint onto the canvas (you thought painting was "work"?)

Love this piece of work - called in on the doors theme ... will call back!

Also appreciated the quote by Proust;
I'll use it on my blog...
