Screen of Trees

A 12x12 oil on canvas of a view on Constitution Hill in Lanesborough.   Through the screen of trees the view extends for miles as you climb up to the top.  Winter in the woods offers the opportunity for composing with verticals and horizontals, the old cubist grid.  I think the old cubist grid existed before cubism.  As I write this, and look outside my studio window,  the spot where the squirrel was digging in the snow yesterday is now bare.
