winter and spring

sumac & spring light, sketch

At least ten inches of snow have fallen in the last week, and none melts during the day.  Winter is still here. Yet, when I stopped to quickly sketch a particular sumac, pine, tree, and treeline in the snowy landscape, I noticed an unmistakeably bright glow of spring light above the band of clouds, above the snowy land.  The pastel painting that I did later has some of the "springiness" that I felt in the air.
