Northern Lights

Northern Lights is a celebration of the holidays, of the snowy evenings that characterize the beautiful winter season. The composition consists of a city near the mountain range in the background, but the canvas is dominated by the evening sky and its water reflection in the bottom half. The piece represents a balance, and also intentionally highlights the insignificance of civilization in the grand scheme of natural beauty, though the eye may naturally focus on the city due to its artificial lighting.

In a time of giving and charity, Northern Lights captures our selfishness, and our need to focus on the greater aspects of life.
