Please inquire if you are interested in this painting!

An outing on cross-country skis took me through winter woods last weekend. We had stayed out later than we had planned. It was only 3:00pm when we realized we needed to turn around and head back to the car so that we wouldn't be caught out after dark when the temps drop down to extreme cold.  By 4:00pm the sun dips down below the treeline and begins to fall like a hot rock into the darkness...which arrives around 4:30pm. This view was beautiful, I wish had time to linger for the sight. (location Barn Island Preserve, Stonington, CT).

I've been out enjoying the recent snowfall. Those of you who know me, or have followed my blog for awhile know that I grew up in Florida - and don't have that much 'snow experience' compared to my friends that have grown up in cold places. So....my CT friends are acclimating me to winter weather and I've been out cross-country skiing a few times - so far it's great fun! Well, I'm working on expanding my horizons. Perhaps I'll learn to like snow a lot if I can have some fun in it! Perhaps I'll even paint more winter landscapes!

Thanks Diane! I'm 'trying' to enjoy the snow. Luckily, there's not tons of it. We've had a bit of melt off, so while it's there - it's thinning a bit (whew! thank goodness- it's nice to see bits of the ground again!
