About the painting...
A black cat is particularly conspicuous on a day such as this. We've yet to see much of the "white stuff" here in Maine, but I expect we'll know it very well soon enough.
Giving a painting like this interest is a challenge; there's so little overall contrast and color to work with. The shapes become very important. This composition worked well for my tastes. Two possibilities for larger paintings appear. In the past a scene like this would have gotten heavy detail. But these days, "wisps" of suggested detail seem to work for me. It depends on my mood, the painting itself and the setting. Just as long as I can keep things interesting...that's the ultimate goal.
