One thing I love about painting in my studio in the winter is the extra reflected light from the snow covering the ground outside. I call it "snowlight" and it means everyday, whether it's sunny or cloudy, is a bright day for painting.

I am working on lots of flower paintings now, waiting for spring. "Spring Gems" is a joyful piece with its bright colors. It has just been completed and can be seen hanging at the Lenox Gallery of Fine Art in Lenox, MA.

"Reflections", 30" x 40", oil on linen, Lydia Johnston
This past Wednesday, I helped to hang a large group art exhibit at the Bennington Center for the Arts. Three of my oil paintings are included in the exhibit, "Reflections", "Shelter", and "Hummingbird's Delight".

The exhibit space is large, so well suited to my large paintings. The show will open on Friday February 1st, and run until the end of May. If you are in southern Vermont, be sure to stop in to see it.
