Lovely brushwork Julian. Happy Christmas.Deirdre.
Hi Julian This is another one of your mysterious paintings. Where do the footsteps go? What will the person(s) see on the other side at the top of this path? Who or what is in the brush on the other side of the path? Are they (or it) disturbed by the walkers. Does your brushwork top left reveal a starry sky or is it the reflection of the light because of the snow? I like the gold of the brush and the pink of the snow that suggests spring despite the cold and the imminent darkness of the winter solstice. For me this dark day IS the beginning of spring as it brings an end to dark days and return to lengthening days of light. Finally your walkers are headed out of shadow towards the light, a perfect touch.
Another wonderfully expressive piece, Julian! Merry Christmas to you and yours!!
What a wonderful snow scene! Brings back memories of skiing in Vermont many years ago. Cape Cod was slammed with snow this weekend, 18 inches, but it is spectacular! Wouldn't you know, our first winter here. Have a beautiful holiday and a happy new year.

Hello again from Anne... Another lovely snow scene...very provocative...where does the path go??? We have 20" of snow in Maryland! Very icy and hard to shovel...but today it is melting and I have dug a path for my dinner guests. May I wish you and yours a beautiful holiday season? I love your work. Anne
