Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: So much clever use of white space in the composition for this drawing depicting a mountain being snowed on. There is perception of so much natural activity even though the only object we know are mobile are the snowflakes floating down from the moving clouds upon the static mountain. Little by little the mountain is being covered in snow and interestingly we can see that though most of the snow falls on top of the mountain, it is the ground and lower layer of the mountain that appear to be fully snowed. It won’t be long before the entire mountain is snow covered.
