The Connecticut River runs through the artist's hometown in Vermont, freezing over each winter. The last glow of the winter day offers a range of possibilities, presenting a different palette of color each evening. His choice of the yellow-green for the sky was influenced by the New England artist, Maxfield Parrish, who lived just north of his home. The bluffs bordering the river offer views over the frozen ribbon and down onto the lights of town settled along the riparian course.
