High up at the top of the chairlift at the summit of the mountain,
The trees were coated with snow and ice, layer on layer
From mother nature and the snow guns of man…
The trees carried the load with aplomb
graceful, statuesque, white, hiding their evergreens….
Skiing between these canyons of snow
Groves of forests of these frozen sentinels
quiet above the din of the lodge, of the open
lower slopes, trails, of the ski area..
Up here, with the blue sky so close as to touch it
the air so cold, so clear
magical in the peacefulness, tranquility…
Up in the short encrusted trees
at the top of the mountain
..R Foss

“*Frozen Sentinels” is the second of this new series of paintings about snow…. it evokes a morning after a snow fall with “the air so cold, so clear, magical in the peacefulness…. tranquility*”…

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    Beautiful Janis! I can feel the chill in the air and see the icicles hanging from the trees and the ice encrusted blades of log grass. They glisten in that early morning light, happy to feel its warmth; albeit from heat or just its light. :-)

  • Thank you so much Cathy….this series really is about Canada, especially Ontario, and you have described it exactly….
