57) Snow Lines

This work is out of order, painted from a picture taken two years ago the day after Christmas. Georgia and Max stop to share a scent … I often think that instead of taking the girls (Georgia and Max) for a walk I should take them for a “smell” as they constantly keep their noses to the ground.

The wind had blown much of the snow away from the still green grass, leaving the truck and tractor tracks hardened with snow and ice. These lines of snow formed wonderful patterns that swirled and cut through the picture.

Standing at the end of the runway looking north towards the southern sky just before sunset. The light above the trees amazed me with a show of primary colors (yellow to red to blue) and cast a golden glow on the trees.
