"'A Blue Norther,'” says Tom Gilleon, “is a rapidly moving cold front that causes
temperatures to drop quickly. It often brings with it precipitation followed by
a period of blue skies and cold weather. The main cause of such a dramatic
cold snap is an extremely strong storm system separating warm, humid air
from frigid, arctic air. If the front passes through at sunrise or sunset, one
can expect to see an intense and dramatic display of color in the skies.”

The lesson in Plains’ weather was only a start. Tom, in describing the work,
talked about the blend of colors in the sky on the right side of the painting
as being “to the north, because the dwelling’s entrances always faced east,
even in a large village.” The philosophy, Tom explained, was that every day
was a new birth and that if you opened the door flap, the first thing you would
see was the sun coming up on a new day. A quick look at Gilleon’s Fine Art
Editions (with multiple dwellings) shows that he adheres to this in his paintings.

"Blue Norther" is far more than a meteorological or history lesson. It is a
dazzling work of art from one of the hottest artists in the market today.
Fourteen of twenty-four releases from The Greenwich Workshop have
Sold Out at the Publisher with most other editions hovering just
above low inventory.
