December Morning 3

7"X5" Oil on board

Another feeble attempt to capture that magical light that we get so often in the early morning and late afternoon in the winter. The sky to the North is almost black, pregnant with snow, but the sun slants in underneath and briefly bathes everything in a golden glow.

Here we are at the solstice, the "first day of winter". It is hard to take that seriously when we already have over a foot of snow and several days when the temperature has dipped well below -10C.
