Orange makes all the difference

The mysterious reincarnation of Tom Thomson, @TTLastSpring, tweeted this photo of the artist’s 1917 painting Wood Interior, Winter. I love the splash of orange against the white in this work. It almost makes the snow-covered trees and shrubs twirl and dance, and adds a sense of playful intimacy, making me feel like I am spying on a private party. Could this be my favourite Tom Thomson painting?
