Well, it is winter, so snow shows up for some reason. New snow is so nice – but old snow is dreary, especially as winter begins to lose the charm it had at Christmas! Slushy, mushy, grey, dirty, muddy.
I decided to make up a scene – with buildings both wooden and brick, with telephone poles, and the grey mist of a city beyond. As a painting by itself, it’s a failure, but adding a few lines helped it out a bit. People will appear when the weather clears . . .
