Does winter have a color? Possibly, but winter sometimes requires us to use our imagination to see the color. In A Winter Retreat, you find lavender, pinks, blues, whites, greys, yellows, greens, and shades of brown on glorious display. The subtle tones of the sky, the green of the mallard’s head, the blues of the water, and the whisper of greys in the rabbits’ footprints provide our imaginations with a kaleidoscope of color. The inviting cabin in A Winter Retreat displays a unique beauty in the shape of the rustic brown-hued logs, the subtle curves and the angular lines. The colors in this painting evoke a sense of warmth and home, giving the viewer feelings of peace and comfort – a place to get away, even if it’s just in your mind for a short time. May this artwork inspire you to find your winter retreat this season!
