What better way to celebrate the Winter Solstice than with a super high-resolution image of a painting I haven’t see before by one of my favorite painters — Frits Thaulow!
I love the seemingly effortless finesse of his brushy application of paint, the gestural structure of the trees, the brief notation of figures and the marvelous paint textures in the sky and snow.
Happy Winter Solstice everybody!
