Seriously... it turns out the title I gave this painting is misleading... at least this year. It should actually have a horizon that is stark white and it should be called "Spring Flurries"! What is happening? It is so cold; the snow keeps coming and the temps keep dropping! I am all for experiencing four seasons, that is part of why I love Saskatchewan, but things have gone too far! Usually the saying is "April showers bring May flowers", but this year the saying in Saskatchewan is "April showers bring snowplowers"! (sorry, I don't know to whom I should credit that nugget). 

I am over winter.

I love this painting and I can hardly wait for no snow and a cool, gentle, rainy night where I can go to sleep with the windows open and listen to the patter as I fall asleep.

It was warm today, but it won't last. Last year it rained all summer. So weather has become unpredictable.

Love the painting.

Great blog, love the size of your landscape paintings. Are they for sale online?

Nicki said...

Hi Barbara, yes, the weather is changing and becoming harder to predict.

I'm glad you like this painting.
