Ann Feldman has requested a post dedicated to Andrew Wyeth's watercolors of snow scenes, and has this to say:

When the subject is snow, I think immediately of Andrew Wyeth's watercolors.  The brightness of the snow is so beautifully offset by his monochrome landscapes.  These paintings feel cold and still.  Just like snow.

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape– 
the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits 
beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. 
–Andrew Wyeth
