Note: From the artist: "A light morning snowfall and cloudy winter day (1/31/20) set the parameters and subtle colors for this work. I'm standing in the upper level of the North Lookout Tower in Brown County State Park, but have included the foreground hillside and the right tree line. One of the many reasons I enjoy painting winter scenes is that nature reveals the lay of the land (the skeletal structure of a scene). Here, the park road (heading back to the North Gate) can be seen in the middle left of the view while the thin layer of snow was just enough to suggest the various slopes of the foreground hills. The misty atmosphere and low cloud base all but obscured the distant hills. INQUIRE MORE
