The artist immersed himself in work during this grieving period. The admiration and power of nature is represented by the artist with the rainbow in the middle ground which stretches across the sky to connect the landscapes together. It is a creation of nature, like a miracle, after a stormy day and brightens the painting with plenty of color. Famous Artists print #91
