Piece I painted a while ago. First snow, which came in October this year, was my inspiration.
Here I tried to make a classical scene with rats family. All started with Mama-rat - she's standing on the threshold, watching as the snow gently falls and reaching her paw to touch the snowflakes. She wonders about the coming winter - will it be very cold? Meanwhile, in the cozy home, Papa-rat reads an epic story for children, holding a little one, while older sister sitting by the fireplace and middle boy is busy playing with alphabet blocks. All is silent in the Woods.
Here I tried to play with the contrasts - warm and cool palettes are one of my favorite options.
