Three Sturdy Birches Study

This quick birch study was inspired by the sun setting behind the birch trees across the road from my house. The long blue shadows danced across the snow. Now that the weather has been warming, there are areas of ground visible through the snow. We have a lot of clay in our soil around here, which gives it a nice reddish tone. The pine trees make for a gentle green backdrop while the distant snowy hill beckons you on to the next adventure. It's been a while since I've posted, due to the flu bug hitting our house. It's nice to be back on my feet. :)
