Here’s my latest painting, featuring my house in Western Springs.  We’ve been buried in snow this winter and it’s easy to miss the beauty of the white stuff when you’re shoveling, snow blowing and fighting the Polar Vortex.

This was around midnight — like in the Thelonious Monk song — and there is actually a lot more color in snow than you think. Those colors are easier to pick up at night than during the day.  I found pink, pale blue and, believe it or not, even some pale green.
