Sun and Snow, John Street Hamilton

6x6 Oil on Board
At this time of year, a day of sunshine is a welcoming and rare occasion. Most often sunshine is associated with very cold temperatures. I like this colorful block if buildings on John Street in Hamilton. The salt that we put on the roads melts the snow and ice and allows for  great reflections.
A nonstop parade of family visitors and a dying computer have kept me from painting, posting, and visiting my fellow bloggers. My new computer was due to arrive a week ago, but I am still waiting! I will make the rounds and visit as soon as I can. Presently, it takes about 10 minutes for a blog to load.
Thank you all for your comments on my previous post. They are always so inspiring.

So good to have you back Catherine-I was needing a 'catherine jeffrey painting fix'!

This painting is well worth the wait with wonderful shots of vibrant colour, pattern and rhythm-so refreshing after such a grey winter.

Good luck with your computer dilemma

Such a splendid building fasade, Catherine! It was successful to zoom in and emphasize the symmetry!

Love this yellow and the reflection. We will want to stay in and do nothing but paint here, supposed to be -15 next week!! Yuk!

Glad to see another painting from you. You can feel the warm of the sun. Love the yellow trim against the warm bricks and cold snow.

Nice painting!

Well... with less computer time, perhaps you're getting in more painting time.

I hope your computer woes will soon be a thing of the past.

Absolutely wonderful, Catherine. I love the reflection of the yellow architecture.
