Cold painting

This folky oil really evokes winter. The brown, gray and off-white colors are appropriately drab. The trees are gnarly. The sun is low. Or is it the moon? All it lacks are some crows. Where are the three people headed? Home after a funeral? The fancy frame seems too much -- and just right -- for such a bleak, primitive painting. It's signed Laura Doyle.
