In this painting, a snowy foreground meets the reds of winter flora. Above that, the dark forest stands before the towering mountains. High above that, the red and yellow sky before dusk offers a brief reprieve from snow showers. This is the time of day when locals who have hunkered down through the snowstorm venture out into the snowy landscape to appreciate the beauty of the snow-covered log fence as the light from above casts purple shadows in the snow. The bright white snow makes the red and orange of the winter flora look like cherries on vanilla ice cream. These are the times when the world is quiet and the beauty and wonder of the Blue Ridge is all-encompassing.
The title of this winter landscape mountains painting art is Heart of the Blue Ridge.
