The Whited AIr
An expressionistic snowcape painted in oils on board, signed by Sarah Gill 2016. Presented behind a white mount and glass within a contemporary slim light oak box frame.
Overall dimension including the frame measures 10.5 x 12.5 inches. The actual artwork within the mount measures 8 x 10 inches.
Inspired by some favourite lines of poetry...
by: Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow, and, driving o'er the fields,
Seems nowhere to alight: the whited air
Hides hills and woods, the river, and the heaven,
And veils the farm-house at the garden's end.
The sled and traveller stopped, the courier's feet
Delayed, all friends shut out, the housemates sit
Around the radiant fireplace, enclosed
In a tumultuous privacy of storm.
