Still Life

This morning is a study in cold-weather pastels. The sky is a watercolor of translucent white clouds stretched over a pale blue sky. The mountains are sketched in with a broad brush coated in dark blue. Patches of snow show through where the brush lifted from the background. In front of the mountains is a layer of dark, dark green, interrupted by the vertical patterns of brown tree bodies. A bright yellow glows amidst the gray layer of clouds that surround the sun, and St Helens stands out in sharp relief against the golden-gray south sky.The world is frozen. Still life with sky.
