Winter Meadow, Reston
oil on canvas
In the early years after we moved to Reston, there was a stated policy
that reforestation and remeadowing was encouraged. Later on, with more
building, less land was left to meadow. Of course, in the natural scheme
of things, meadows precede scrub woods which then rise to forests. One
of these days, we've got to start paying attention to our environment.
This painting has long been a favorite of mine. It's large, 36 x 48 inches,
and would make a good piece for a large room, over a couch or fireplace,
even on a brick or stone wall.
