When I was living in the northernmost tip of New York state, in a town called Potsdam, I used to delight in hiking during the long, cold North Country winters. The landscape was sublime; essentially flat, rocky, and forested with maple, birch, and conifers. One day I was finishing my hike at dusk when I came across a lone sapsucker on a dying birch in the middle of a pasture. The bird seemed to be sitting quietly in meditation watching a large full moon looming close to the horizon. This incredible scene has been in my mind for more than 25 years, and in this painting I finally got a chance to set it free. I hope you find this scene as magical as I did.
