Bare Winter

Bare Winter

Piece description from the artist

I created “Bare Winter” with the subdued colors of an early winter sunrise in mind. My original inspiration was purely visual: the contrast of the cold winter night giving way to the first light of the sun.

Then I came to see that the warm light breaking through the cold was powerfully symbolic. In his ‘Ode to the West Wind’, Shelley wrote:

“If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?”

For me, the sun on winter snow is a metaphor for healing. No matter where you are in life, there’s always hope. Sooner or later, the winter will thaw and the spring will come.

This original oil painting was created using only the highest quality professional grade oil paint and natural non-toxic solvent to produce an archival work of art. The 1.5 inch gallery wrapped edges are painted so that no framing is needed. It is ready to hang.
