Go Tell It On The Mountain

Mountains often appear in the background of paintings.  Why not make the mountain occupy the whole painting?  This is a small paintiing, which made me think of eliminating the foreground because the elements there would have to be so tiny. 

I was also conscious  of providing contrast to the angular edges of the mountain.  Study the snowcovered areas lower on the mountain to see the curves that help define the slopes.

The snow is made by flicking a toothbrush with white paint on it.
