Inspiration and Design:
This subject matter was found during the 2012 Great Black Hills Plein Air Paint Out.  On my way to the Fillmore Mine at daybreak, I found myself in a glorious woodland of Aspens across a large hilltop.  The white bark reflects the morning glow, and the alternation of field and wood create an attractive composition with opportunity to show depth.  I added snow to the landscape to emphasize these aspects.
