(Northern Lights) is not a picture that asks for serious interpretation. It is an ode, a glorious celebration of winter and the north. A tall pine tree dominates the sky, echoed by a line of conifers leading to the mountains below. The eye is drawn backward and upward by these parallel lines, to the explosion of color above, erupting like a volcano from the distant mountains. It is an invitation to look upward, to raise one’s eyes to the heavens and chance to see a glimpse of the transcendent.
