Related > To capture his lovely style of painting and pass on his wealth of knowledge to new generations, Irby Brown has filmed a video of one of his beautiful snow scenes found in the American West.

Deep in the forest, fallen tree logs provide beautiful compositions of the abstract shapes nature offers us each day, and gives the artist painting fodder for a lifetime.

Irby takes this scene and make it into an unforgettable tableau that one can view and appreciate every day of the year.
