Just beneath the snow

Spring Field, North Stonington. Oil on stretched canvas, 8x10
This is what's beneath the snow. Fields yellow and green and wet, not ready for planting or even driving through. Last fall's leaves, sodden and solid in the treed spots, and at the edges of the fields and hillsides. This snow will melt soon enough, and bring us back to what we had last weekend.

Here are some calls for entry that looked intriguing:

Gals, I feel I will shrivel up and die if I don't get out and paint. Painting inside is one thing, but painting in the wide open air seems like life to me!

Thanks for the comments.
