Winter Grocery Landscape

This Blue Ridge winter landscape is not a gallery piece, it's a backdrop for fruits and vegetables at Trader Joe's. I was tasked to do these backdrops on seasonal themes, with a local connection if possible. By now I have memorized the Shenandoah terrain and can generate images of it from memory in all seasons, so this vegetable calendar scene is for winter. Shelley wrote: "If winter comes, can Spring be far behind?" The answer is, yes, you're gonna look at bare trees until April. At least you can munch on apples and bananas through the miracle of modern transportation.

Acrylic on masonite, about 2 feet x 3 feet.
