#232 -- Cold Winter Evening

I recently finished this winter scene.  It is 11" x 14" and will be matted and framed to 16" x 20".

It features a cozy woodland cabin on a cold winter evening.  Perhaps the inhabitants are enjoying their evening meal warmed by a fire in the fireplace.  While they are settling in, one of nature’s creatures has come out of hiding. 

The winter sky was created with melaleuca and paper birch bark. The mountains were outlined with skeleton leaves. The cabin was constructed with brown day lily leaves, bark and straw.  Other botanicals include white poplar, maple and miscellaneous leaves; artemesia, cotton, birch bark, assorted skeleton leaves, fern, evergreen, garlic skin, onion skin, hydrangea, cosmos and seaweed.  This piece will be vacuum sealed and framed with 99% UV acrylic.  A second layer of glass will cover the matting.
