8x10 oil on canvas
This is one of those pictures where its difficult to know what is being portrayed. The town I live in is in a valley, so we are surrounded by hills and the Niagara Escarpment. When I looked out my front door this morning, the trees and snow on the hills were all lit up by the morning sun. I knew it would be hard to do, but I thought I would attempt a small rendition anyway. I would have liked to work outside, but at nineteen degrees below zero (celcius) I decided to take a photo and do a quick study from that.
