Every now and then inspiration for a painting sits in your mind long enough that when you finally put brush to canvas, the painting almost paints itself! That was the case with “Winter Reflections”.
I think that if someone had given me the task of painting with only 2 colours, I would have felt somewhat limited. But that was not the case at all with this painting. Two paint colours were all that was needed and there was no more to consider. In the end, I think that the simplicity of only 2 colours makes it all work!
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

I love nothing better than walking along a trail in the woods after a fresh snowfall. I love the way the snow covers everything like a soft blanket, leaving nothing uncovered. Only Mother Nature can be so meticulous and thorough. I love the way the snow crunches underfoot on an extremely cold crisp winter day. This is the winter of my youth, the northern Ontario winter.
Come March though, I know I’ll be longing for spring!
