session three:
winter trees


Some traditional paintings...

A leafless branch radiates form and pattern as a sillouhette on the winter sky.

"Upon returning to Canada for Christmas from Costa Rica, the second thing that startled me (after the cold) was the colour. The colour of winter. At first, all can seem monotonously bleak-- there's seem to be nothing by white, grey, black. However, with a little patience and observation, one can be quickly overwhelmed by the richness of the winter pallette. The setting sun turns the silhouette of a tree into a fascinating flat two dimensional fractal pattern, tinged with orange and yellows. These bright colours in turn bring out the hidden tones of blue and purple of the snowy world. Just as medieval artisans would allow the sun to glory God through their stained glass windows, the intricate patterns formed by a window of trees, in like manner glorify the cathedral of creation about them."

Following the philosophy of his painting, Russell Maier gives all the pictures he creates away. You may download desktop background images, and high resolution, printable poster files from this website.
