This wasn't the scene I was looking for on that very biting cold morning; I was on my way north to take some shots of Max Ryan's home. But the light was wrong at his house, so as I returned to town I saw this off to my right. In painting it, I limited my palette to mostly cool colors to try to communicate how cold it was. The light really did produce those strong, horizontal shadows. Hope you like it - barns and snow - soul warming!
