In love with the light

In winter so many of the views you see, are those just outside
your windows.  In February this year that has been especially
true, because lots of snow, and very cold weather has made
staying inside very attractive.

For Torontonians -- the return of the light, and the play of
light in winter is a primary focus.  I started this painting of
the view across the street in the late afternoon light a while back.
It captures the feeling of the time of day when light leaves one part
of the street and still shines on house rooftops, and distant trees.

Have a loving the view day!
