White Thread by Anastasiia Kraineva

White Thread. Oil on Canvas. 39.4 H x 43.3 W x 0.8 in

In this landscape painting by Anastasiia Kraineva from Ukraine, we see an empty field in early or late winter. Patches of snow sit on dead colorless grass. The bare, stark branches of leafless trees stand in the foreground. In the distance we something that might either be a fence, or perhaps a long line of block apartments buildings. The landscape is painted almost entirely in bleak browns, blacks, and dirty yellows, with the one exception that in the distance, a deeply blue sky can be glimpsed pehind wisps of dark clouds, offering hope for a warmer season’s return.
