Art and Beauty Tuesday--Gerhartz
Artistically, I think, even without the snow, there is something about that sky that would still evoke winter. The way he depicts light--with an almost frozen aura around it--really shows not so much what cold looks like, as what it feels like. The very paint itself seems icy cold and unable to flow too freely.
The church in the background makes me think the driver is returning home from a Christmas service, to the warmth of a cup of hot chocolate by a roaring fire.
I hope he has found what he searches for.
