THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
This particular winter sky, as strange as it seems, is even whiter than the snow, almost glowing through the naked trees. No colours and no defined structures, this is simply a quiet landscape, hosting a lone dog, most probably looking for food and active in this quest, a necessity if he is to survive this harsh and bare environment to see a better season and a better day. The crisp, cold scene is depicted to perfection and makes the viewer not only want to reach out and take that dog in, if only for the night, but begs us to wonder at the simplicity, harshness, and cold that nature, the world and life sometimes leave us with.
