I finished a companion piece for Autumn - not that the two need be together, but I also thought of this one on a walk around the neighborhood, and it also features one of the crows from Autumn, and it is called Winter. They're both 19x19, so they could frame up as companions.
I wanted to play with the deep blue of an evening sky in winter becoming the blue of the tree trunks in the foreground. I also wanted to play with the zone of pink that often lines the entire horizon during a NC winter dusk.
The stairs were one of the things that came to me on the walk - the piece wouldn't have enough interest or depth without them, I think.
