This landscape has an other-worldly quality.

The inner glow that emanates from the base of the mountain gives this painting a sense of mystery. It makes us wonder what is creating this phenomenon even though our mind tells us the sun is setting.

In contrast, the mountain, stable and permanent, seems evanescent as if it's about to disappear behind the shroud of mist while the sponge-like, rich dark-red turf feels substantial and solid.
