Winterball is a fun little exercise that first appeared in my Spherical Aberrations exhibit. It has no meaning beyond being an interesting surrealist scene. The red ball dominating the sky is often thought of as a Sun image, but really is just a red ball improbably hanging in the sky. The line of trees on the horizon is actually the result of a technical error, but it worked so well with the painting that I left it in. Similarly for the tiny “prominences” visible at the edge of the red-ball image.
