    Description

    As if standing on one dimly lit section of road one views the road as it makes its way through patches of brilliant sunlight before disappearing around a bend. 

    The one lane dirt road is carved from a mountainside and leads the viewer into a forest where pockets of sunlight filter through the green canopy bathing patches of lower branches and grasses in a brilliant blend of yellows and greens that contrast against the muted colors of the surrounding forest.

    Background of matted shades of yellow, greens and browns set the stage the strack contrast between the rich mid and foreground while the impressionistic leaves and grasses stimulate the viewer's senses. Impressionism gives way to realism of fine detail found throughout the work.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
