"Every morning I take my dog for a long walk beside the Connecticut River in Vermont. In winter it can be quite still and lovely. As the sun begins to rise over the mountains the sky can gradually become a beautiful spectrum of colors against which the trees are silhouetted. One morning there was an owl that took its place there and inspired this image. An open lead of water in the iced-over river provides a distant dash of color in the muted tones of the winter dawn. There were four separate impressions made to construct the print but the first impression alone has four colors in it. You see the complete process of making this print in my February, 2011 newsletter."
