A Winter Retreat

Artist Notes

Does winter have a color? Possibly, but winter sometimes requires us to use our imagination to see the color. In A Winter Retreat you find lavender, pinks, blues, whites, greys, yellows, greens, and shades of brown on glorious display. The subtle tones of the sky, the green of the mallard’s head, the blues of the water, and the whisper of greys in the rabbits’ footprints provide our imaginations with a kaleidoscope of color. The inviting cabin in A Winter Retreat displays a unique beauty in the shape of the rustic brown hued logs, the subtle curves and the angular lines.  The colors in this painting evoke a sense of warmth and home, giving the viewer feelings of peace and comfort – a place to get away, even if it’s just in your mind for a short time. May this artwork inspire you to find your winter retreat this season!

Key Points:

  • A tribute is paid to Thomas Kinkade in A Winter Retreat. Thom’s young exposure to works of Thomas Hill always inspired him to create magnificent landscapes.
  • Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, and for talks by the fire. The colors and composition of this painting were chosen to remind the viewer of beautiful winter family traditions and the feelings that accompany them.
  • The rocking chair on the porch beckons you to sit and watch nature come to life.
  • Can you spot the toboggan?
