Belated "sketch crawl" painting

Long Shadows
"In the bleak mid-winter, the snow lay on the ground." A favorite stanza from a Christmas carol comes to mind as I peered out the window yesterday morning to this most beautiful sight. I love it when the sunlight streams through the neighbor's arborvitaes and onto the glistening snow covered lawn. Hard to capture, but I've made an attempt here in oils for a quick "sketch."
