With impeccable photographic realism, a wolf is depicted standing atop a snow bank, its breath visible in the frigid air, and his eyes watchful. The painting is carefully composed, featuring a contrast of colors, as in a sky that transitions from a warm, muted gold to a deep and foreboding gray. The snow is painted with dynamic brushstrokes, giving the impression of motion. Golden blades of grass break through the snow, adding a sense of hope and life to this otherwise bleak winter landscape. The rocks and snow-dusted pines create a sense of texture and depth to the composition.
