Description Winter months are not necessarily drab in the forest. The black raspberry leaves are rose and burgundy colors in a winter sunbeam. A female cardinal feather holds the same rosy tones.This nature painting of a wild bramble is both traditional and yet has abstract elements. The subjects are both realistic and detailed with a soft and nearly abstract background that suggests the misty forest.
