This painting was created from a photograph I took one brisk winter morning driving toward Schuylerville, NY. The photo cannot show the nuances of color, especially in the sky and the trees. The trees in the foreground are a deep, rich green/violet. 

In Chinese painting, the color violet represents the harmony of the universe because it is a combination of red and blue (Yin and yang respectively).

In the United Kingdom it is traditional to package chocolate in violet colored packaging because of the association of the color royal purple with luxury.
