Digging Out, Dundas

8x10 oil on canvas panel
Everyone seems to be buried under a lot of snow, so I thought this would be a fitting piece to celebrate the "winter wonderland". We don't have this much snow here in Dundas...this is a scene from another similar snowfall. I don't usually use a "spatter" method to show snowflakes, but I wanted to have a little fun with this one.

It does look cold....this person has quite the task ahead and is most deserving of a hot chocolate. Nice story and job well done.
