Eric Merrell

Like Sunlight on Snow

  • 12" x 16", artwork
  • Contemporary

Description
This beautiful scene does more than capture a beautiful moment in time when the sun, the snow, and the surrounding woods come together in harmony. It is also intended to represent a feeling of peace and tranquility. Winter is a much quieter time of year, and allows people to be more introspective, and through Merrell’s use of intimate perspective and the inclusion of large areas open to the viewers, he allows them to explore themselves as they explore the landscape of the painting. The greens of the trees and the blue-ish quality of the snow on the ground entices the viewer to step inside, and fulfills Merrell’s intentions of helping find peace within the hills and snow.

Provenance
Acquired by American Legacy Fine Arts directly from the artist

Exhibitions
"The External and The Contemplative" at American Legacy Fine Arts, Pasadena, CA, October 24-November 21, 2015
