Along the National Highway in Indiana is the small town of Greenfield. The famous poet, James Whitcomb Riley, grew up here. His home is on this road. If you go around the block you will find the back of his property.
This painting shows a winter scene. It is dramatic because it has the fence and trees back lit. The fence is larger at the left and gets smaller as it goes to the right. This is linear perspective. The trees and fence are larger than the buildings in the background. This is a technique of atmospheric perspective. It gives a feeling of depth as the painting is viewed.
The sun shines brightly on the snow and the cast shadows are blue, reflecting the color of the sky. I have tried to portray the frigid, cold air.
