March 27, 2015. The scene is the same as the previous painting, Night Snow. I wanted a greater sky and therefore a different relation of sky to the ground. It struck me that although I carefully checked the size of foreground trees to distant woods, and the size of the trees to the snowy foreground that was visible to me, the total effect was to make everything appear quite small, almost miniature. It was something like a Northern Sung landscape of a thousand years ago. Acrylic on linen, 34X16 inches, $2000.00. Click to enlarge.
