In this painting, Winter Welcome, I wanted the viewer to really feel winter. Where I am, here in semi-northern Canada, winters are fabulous. The air gets so crisp and clean. On a clear day, the sky is so blue and bright. Your nose gets so cold, and your feet, if you don't wear proper boots! It's actually a wonderful thing to experience a white and frosty winter.
This winter, if you're able, head on out there and really embrace it, that beautiful landscape, the sounds of cracking ice on a peaceful lake, or the look of your breath disappearing into thin air...
