17°F icy cold wind
As daylight quickly slips away, a golden glow desperately hangs near the horizon. Purples and blues creep in behind me, shadows start to disappear, and the night takes over.
The retention pond is nearly iced-covered except for a small round opening which contains many mallards and geese, noisily competing for some aquatic real estate.
A strong icy wind from the North-West stings my face and makes me head towards my car.
Here is the actual photo. I painted this at home in the comfort of warmth! I went a little crazy on the thickness of the foreground tree….but that’s okay.
Winter although harsh, is so beautiful especially near sunset when soft pastel colors emerge!
NICE Work Chris.
Carol: Thank you and Merry Christmas!
