Less Depressing than the Previous Post

This painting was completed a few months ago, but until now I hadn't realized that it wasn't posted on the blog. The sumac berries are very appealing to birds, and the leaves and berries are appealing to paint.

This is a tough winter. The combination of cold, wind and snow accumulation has not inspired me to be creative or productive. The temperature is dropping and the north wind is making the windows rattle. There is a bit of extra daylight at the beginning and the end of the day, and I know it's increasing, but it's useless against the onslaught. Oh, for a warm day!
