Woods in Winter


The  panoram­ic paint­ing “Woods in Win­ter” is a 360* wrap around view in which the first tree is also the last one. For years I’ve want­ed to cre­ate a room whose walls van­ished into the illu­sion that it was the out-of-doors. This piece is a first step but with only 33′ of length the cir­cle it makes is only 10′. I have shown the piece with half of it mount­ed in a semi-cir­cle. This was quite excit­ing as it makes the shad­ows fall in place. I have drawn pro­posed stretch­ers that wrap around in a spi­ral but I’ve not yet built them. Anoth­er idea I enter­tain for this piece is to use tech­nol­o­gy to print it out enlarged to room height as a wall­pa­per. If the height went from the present 3′ up to 8′ the length would expand to 88′ which would paper a fair sized room.

Con­tent wise this is a pic­ture of a beau­ti­ful late after­noon in the woods in winter.

Some­times paint­ing some­thing beau­ti­ful is enough.
