This work exemplifies Stevens’ use of color, line, and form to depict a personal and spiritual interpretation of a landscape. The composition is seen as if the viewer is standing at the edge of a heavily wooded forest. None of the treetops are visible above, suggesting its age and the great height of the forest. There is a glimpse of sky seen just left of center as the viewer looks up at the horizon line. Darkening color and loosening line separate the foreground and background. Stevens portrays the disorienting nature of the forest, yet he observes it from the lightness at the edge. The atmosphere is mysterious as the landscape itself is unclear.
