Kote’s “Sweet Bliss” lights up a placid countryside speckled with gold-shining trees and expressive fields of blue wheat. The sky beginning to clear over the fields, leaves the land “blissfully sweet” as it encourages an abundant crop and the fruition of a plentiful harvest. Kote’s palette is strong and complimentary, radiating hints of warmth against a teal and gray backdrop. He focuses the viewer on more detailed forms like the barns and silo emerging from the abstracted landscape of the painting, blending these specified structures with those which are left to the imagination.
