Goodbye To Winter

My mind is in spring already. So I am letting go of the season with a few paintings that depict the wonder and beauty of winter.

I am not a big appreciator of winter, and ours ends up being too long every year, so this activity is a bit balancing to me. I am saying thanks to all the good impulses, news, redirections, leaps, connections and joys that this season has brought.

East coast winter scenes:

Winter in Belgium. Indoors.

Painting by Fernand Toussaint. This reminds me of green life indoors and that sowing the garden of 2021 can start in these weeks.
