A Silence Broken by Nambroth A Silence Broken by Nambroth
"A Silence Broken" Ruffed Grouse and Red Fox, 11"x14" Oil on panel.
Inspired by a real scene near my home, one very cold Thanksgiving morning a few years ago. The sky was clear but the air was so cold that moisture was turning to ice crystals and glittering down in the sunrise, creating a very ethereal scene. All was silent. While I didn't see the fox in person, the tracks in the snow let me know that it was there shortly before I was.

Wow, simply fantastic. In a very realistic, natural way. I love how it combines the serenity of a winter morning with a small dynamic moment. The light upon those tree tops in the near distance is very beautiful, makes them look like crystal - just like it does in real life.

WOW! love this! I love the differences of your shadows vs your light. Your animals are also great as well, but that's a given.

This is absolutely gorgeous. You've captured the atmosphere and lighting perfectly. The composition is very easy on the eyes as well. The fox pops up from the snow and you can follow his gaze onto the bird and from there to the distant landscape. A very beautiful and pleasing painting!

I can never exactly tell what grouses I run into when hiking. They always escape or hide too well. Great job on the art!
