Winter Landscape

Winter Sunshine, 5 x 7", watercolor
Back to the views of winter again. This little field overlooks a larger one that in turn looks down toward the Joggins, a narrow creek and salt marsh area running out to the Annapolis Basin. But this particular view no longer exists. There is now a neat and tidy red house built right about where my signature is sitting in the painting.
There was also a venerable apple tree smack dab where the center of the painting is, but I left that out as it would have not added anything to this painting. Someday I might paint this view again, keeping in the apple tree in such a way to have it add to the beauty of the view, not detract.
