Two more fields of nothing

Best wishes to everyone for a happy and productive new year!

It hasn't stopped snowing since we have been up here. I keep peering into snowy fields. They look like nothing much, but deceptively a lot is happening (no pun intended). These are 8x10 on uart paper.

I am reading a book called Cezanne's Composition by Erle Loran. He says some intriguing things, such as that what Cezanne said, in his famous comments to Emile Bernard, and how he painted, do not agree. I have always wondered about Cezanne the theorist vs. Cezanne the painter. I will follow Loran's lead that one should only use the paintings as guides.
