Winter is over


Now that spring is here, I thought is was time to finish this winter picture. Sometimes I like to paint a landscape during a season that is different from the current one.

The dog is thrilled to be out in the cold, making a strong shadow in the blinding snow. A few human footsteps can be seen, but the visitor changed his mind and turned back. Didn’t want to disturb the rare snow……..
