L'eglise du village

8x10 oil on linen ,copyrighted 2007
When I was home last year visiting my nephew , it had snowed the night before and we woke up to a beautiful landscape of fresh snow, it had been years since I had been in France in the winter , I always make my trips in Spring or fall , it's not an area where it does snow very much , when I was a child , I think I missed school ounce due to 2 inches of snow , living in New England I have learned what snow is , like today we have 17 inches in two days .
