Winter Serenade

Merrill Coffin’s “Winter Serenade” delicately captures a serene and harmonious winter scene, where nature’s inhabitants come together against the backdrop of a tranquil landscape. The painting unfolds with a symphony of colors, textures, and avian life.

At the heart of the composition, a charming bluebird house, dusted with a hint of snow, is affixed to the slender trunk of a birch tree. Perched atop this cozy refuge are two cardinals, the male’s brilliant red plumage standing out vibrantly against the winter backdrop. The male and female cardinals create a striking pair, their presence a testament to the enduring bond of nature.

On a wood-barbed wire fence nearby, a watchful blue jay takes a keen interest in the scene. His observant gaze adds a touch of curiosity to the composition. The fence, weathered and rustic, provides a grounded contrast to the delicate perches of the birds.

In the distance, the landscape unfolds in a muted dusk, with white birch trees standing tall against the fading light. Snow-covered pine trees add texture and depth to the horizon, creating a sense of tranquility and stillness. Far Beyond, a hint of rolling hills recede into the soft hues of twilight, their forms muted by the encroaching evening.

Coffin’s “Winter Serenade” captures the essence of a quiet winter evening, where the delicate interactions of birds and the timeless beauty of nature converge. The painting invites viewers to appreciate the simplicity and elegance of the winter landscape, where every detail contributes to the enchanting melody of a winter serenade.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    I have this painting in the antique shop for sale right now. Recently acquired it along with a duck painting done by your grandfather. I will be going to the Erie Antique show and will take it with me this weekend. Tim
