First snow, that cold, white, winding sheet, lies stretched o’er all the ground,
It shrouds the world, and all that’s in it, while winter doth abound.
Death mask adorned, winter’s partial span will grow to join together,
Both autumn’s death and springs rebirth, thus life rolls on as ever…Matsuo Basho
After the Storm" is the first watercolour I did when I started to paint in 1993….it is a picture of snow fall in Northern Ontario, from an old out of print book of sample photos for artists to use….
I am very familiar with the area, since I lived there for several years and experienced the same kinds of storms every winter_.
