I took a walk around the block early on February 4,  2011 after the  4 day blizzard. This morning the sun finally broke through the clouds. This painting is a beautiful home on Purdue Ave and I was impressed with all the shadows cast on the home created by the trees. The neighborhood was sparkling with sun bouncing off of the snow.
