Janet, your layering is masterful! This piece has such a dreamy, looking-through-water quality. Very evocative, with its muted color palette; mix of horizontals, verticals, and subtle snippets of diagonals; quiet details; and great expansiveness. The organic bits that show through when snow is melting—so much more welcome than the man-made litter that sometimes appears under the same conditions!
Thank you very much Dotty - as you well know we as artists are our own worst enemy. Appreciate what you are finding and seeing - I can't ask for a better outcome!! Have to admit our winter pasture is no great 'looker' once spring melt comes, but the deposits left behind by the mules and horse serves to rejuvenate - a good harrow and they have some lovely grass to enjoy in the fall vs the man-made litter that just defaces! Take care
I have been staring at this for a few minutes. Just love the soft palette. Love the light in the sky. There is movement. Refraction maybe... ice crystals or water drops in the air. Lovely. And the layers - wonderful as always. I love the warm trees, the hint of grass. Beautiful all around Janet :)
