A nearby gallery put out a call for paintings with the theme of 'winter'. Their description was for ideas not only reflecting snowy scenes but perhaps darkness, struggle, etc. You get the idea. Well, I am not submitting but it did get me thinking. When we think of winter, perhaps we might just imagine 'snowbirds'. My sister is a snowbird, leaving the north country before November begins and returning when the snow melts. She has so much fun all winter with her southern friends. This would be a typical winter scene in Ft. Lauderdale and the other east Florida coastline towns. Winter- now there's a nice thought!
