This 12x12 oil on canvas painting depicts a gully edged with tall pine trees, planted years ago, I was told, to hold the banks in place. I completed the painting a few days ago based upon a digital reference from last week. Yesterday, when I returned to look at the gully, most of the snow was already gone. I spent the afternoon snowshoeing up and down the side of a nearby mountain. I was there last week as well, but didn't go up as far. Based upon what I trudged through last week, I find it amazing how quickly the snow is disappearing.
