Well the New Year came in at a chilly -29 degrees at Pearl Lakes. My family stayed with some friends at Pearl Lakes - we had to snowmobile to the cabin on Dec 31 and it took awhile for the cabin to warm up- there had been quite a cold snap on the 31st and the wind didn't help much. The next day on the 1st- there was not a bit of wind so inspite of the cold it was rather pleasant. I started this painting at about 11:00 in the morning. The cabin in the front is the only cabin that I did any detail on - there were a bunch in the background that I suggested with small strokes of the brush- this was a rather hard painting to accomplish as - the light was so brilliant that I had to squint to constantly - everything was SOOO WHITE!!!
