Art is meant to arouse the senses and provoke an emotional response. This original painting by Nelson Ruger does just that. His use of color and light creates a warm and inviting feeling, despite the fact that it's a winter scene. You can almost feel the cold air nipping at your nose as you gaze at the lone tree in the marshes. The gate in the stone wall beckons you to come closer, to discover what lies beyond. There's a sense of mystery and wonder in this piece that will stay with you long after you've seen it.
Ruger is a master of impressionism, and this painting is a perfect example of his talent. The detail and layers in the painting are amazing, each one adding something new to the overall picture. The artist used colors and brushes that he normally doesn't work with, which gives the piece an added layer of interest. This is a truly unique painting that will add depth and beauty to any home or office.
