Bright and Sanctified Mud

About walking outdoors, Emily Dickinson wrote,

It is a lonesome Glee -
Yet sanctifies the Mind -
With fair association -
Afar upon the Wind

A Bird to overhear
Delight without a Cause -
Arrestless as invisible -
A matter of the Skies.

This painting makes the cold wind and warming sun clear. The mud gives it away; it's a landscape waiting for green.

Sam, Green is starting to hint at an appearance.
