A multilayered collage of petals of various flowers, lichen, silk paper and fabric representing winter trees with leaves falling and specks of snow against an evening sky. The trees have been painted in Chinese ink and the snow as well as some parts of the sky have been added in acrylics. The picture conveys a strong sense of cold even though its dominant colours are in a range of warm browns and orange. The contrast between light round shapes and dark angular ones gives it an abstract dimension, but it is still clearly recognisable as a seasonal nature scene. It is the end of the day, still light enough to enjoy the beauty and serenity of a wood one has just walked through on one’s way home.
Last but not least: The picture comes in a wooden frame which has an interestingly textured grey-yellow coating with a golden sheen which perfectly matches the colours in the picture.
