In this painting I was trying to catch something of the visual "shock" one gets when outdoors in winter. Contrasts are so extreme; even fairly light objects can appear dark against the snow. Colors which in other seasons might appear drab feel rich and saturated. Even this modest little barn takes on a monumental presence.

Fantastic!!! You achieved that "shock" of contrasts, cold and scale. Wonderful!

Thanks Jeanne, I'm glad you feel the painting works as I intended.
