I started this painting yesterday, when snow was falling. I finished it this afternoon when there was no snow or rain in the air. We're expecting more snow tonight, so perhaps I'll get another chance to do a snow painting.
I've been in a reflective frame of mind these days and I think this painting will serve me as a good reminder. This winter has been dark and cold; I'm thinking eagerly toward spring.
I'm pleased with the tone of this painting; it's something I've been looking for, somehow. I think I mixed enough of this gray tone to last me through the spring; it'll be interesting to see how it works, how I like it -- or not.
