Two paintings, two complete different ideas of winter in the Northwest. We get cold snowy days followed by warmer and balmy weather, followed again by cold and snow. This first painting is from a photo taken last winter along the Columbia River. The water in this painting is a small tributary that winds around and then back to the main channel.
From a photo taken this winter near home. The snow is gone now, but maybe more on the way. Weather reporting is not an exact science in our area.
