Our Hilltop Neighbor - Lin Frye

Our Hilltop Neighbor

Though the crocus are poking out of the ground, and in some neighborhoods, daffodils are popping up as well, snow flew yesterday -- flurries only, no accumulation - but the blustery winds and frigid temps reminded us once more, winter isn't ready to depart.

This painting was done from photos I took during our previous snowfall. I stood on our road and looked across the fence and through the trees to capture a bit of the farmhouse.

Yesterday's snow was beautiful - if short lived. The days are slowly growing longer, and I am certain this summer when we slog through 90F heat and humidity, we'll miss the crispness of such clean, bright air.

Still, it seems to have been a mighty long winter!

Stay warm!

  1. A real beauty, Lin. The Carolina winter has been rough this year. You are making beautiful memories of this unusual weather.

  2. What a lovely reflection of the winter and this painting is beautiful. Between the painting and your words I feel as if I had experienced this setting myself. Wonderful!

  3. Lovely Lin! Your snow sketches really give us on this other side of the world a peek into your winters. Nice going.

  4. Such a serene setting! Sorry that your winter has been so tough...however, your snow sketches are just lovely!
