Winter landscape mountains painting art – Heart of the Blue Ridge

(10 customer reviews)


In this painting, a snowy foreground meets the reds of winter flora. Above that, the dark forest stands before the towering mountains. High above that, the red and yellow sky before dusk offers a brief reprieve from snow showers. This is the time of day when locals who have hunkered down through the snowstorm venture out into the snowy landscape to appreciate the beauty of the snow-covered log fence as the light from above casts purple shadows in the snow. The bright white snow makes the red and orange of the winter flora look like cherries on vanilla ice cream. These are the times when the world is quiet and the beauty and wonder of the Blue Ridge is all-encompassing.

The title of this winter landscape mountains painting art is Heart of the Blue Ridge.

    LOVE this painting. I feel like it truly depicts the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains and evokes a feeling I can’t quite describe of my favorite place in the world. Would love to have this on my wall.

    I have seen many of Kents paintings. All are amazing! This particular one has beautiful colors and lines and makes you feel the mountains.

      Thank you Cherri! I mixed paint with creek water that I collected from here at Powder Horn Mountain to create those colors in the sky and mountains.

    Kent is so very talented. He has truly captured the beauty and mystique of the High Country in this painting. The colors. the texture …all of it sing on lovely harmony of the beauty that is the High Country!.

    • Kent Paulette

      Thank you Elizabeth! I painted those thick textures using a large palette knife. Beforehand I stuck my face in the cold creek water to help inspire me to paint this scene of the Appalachian mountains.

  6. Thomas Payne

    Yet another wonderful expression of Kent’s unique vision of the world.

    • Kent Paulette

      Thanks Tom! So many inspiring scenes everywhere I look here in the NC High Country… even on foggy mornings like today.

  7. Susan

    It reminds me of a cold late fall day with an early snow. I can feel the chill in the air, the crispness, I can smell smoke from a nearby cozy cabin and heat the sound of a whippoorwill calling.

    • Kent Paulette

      Thank you Susan! Such a wonderful description! I love that this painting evokes those memories for you… I feel that too.

    I grew up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains. I still spend a lot of time there enjoying the spectacular beauty that’s just minutes away from where I live. This painting depicts our mountains perfectly. Beautiful!
