The Lost Cathedral

I decided to take a little break from the intensely coloured pictures (and red) for a while and do a moody and subtly coloured snow landscape as a change. The influences are Caspar David Friedrich and Monet for this one and is based on a red/orange - blue/green complementary colour axis. How I came to the title is kind of interesting: I was mulling over possible titles whilst coming back from the dentist on a bus, the titles being variants of "The  Forgotten Realm", "The Lost Realm"etc and was just thinking of "The Lost ......" when a child on the bus near to where I was sitting just said "cathedral" which I had also been considering. With that I took it as serendipity and felt that it was fate that it be called "The Lost Cathedral".....
Also in the back of my mind was a piece by Debussy called "The Engulfed Cathedral" ... 
Oil on linen 22" x 16". There is a step-by-step progress through this painting in previous posts on this blog.
