When we woke up this morning, the sky was white and the ground too! We are receiving our first real snowstorm in the eastern part of the country. Yes! Also, I did my first shoveling of the season. Michel and I always compete to shovel every neighbor's front door next to our place.
We enjoy it, one of our greatest winter fun. It sounds weird when you live in a city, because most of everyone usually complain about snow, rain etc. But we both share a passion for nature and appreciate every kind of weather.

I finally completed this painting started at the end of December last year. I had a great time working on it, seing these lighted bulbs bring back very good memories- I was only 4 or 5...

Tomorrow, I will post the third and last painting of the "Vintage" series
on Painted Snapshots

Thank you for your visit and comments!
