Here’s what the artist had to say about this artwork:
I wanted to paint another snow scene, but this time with some more color. I chose this image because of the orange tree in the foreground and the contrast it created with the snow. The soft light in the back trees was somewhat difficult to achieve, but I thought it added a nice touch of mystery to this piece. I accentuated the highlights in the snow to draw the viewer’s eye from that orange tree to the soft light, to make them wonder where that path may lead to.
