"Spring Cometh"

"Spring Cometh"
Oil, 8" X 10"  

As I travel the West, I come upon scenes that say to me, "paint me."  This is one of them.  The last of the snow, the trees still barren, but the promise of Spring from the sun.  While there is  minimal color here that enhances the painting.  Where does the trail of snow lead to?  More snow or Spring?

This is a plein air piece, or a painting done on site.  While i was painting this several people stopped by.  One person said, "well that scene is beautiful.  I walk here every day, but never really looked at how beautiful that scene is."
