Story on the back:

Wheelchairs and snow don’t tend to do well together. During one unusually wintry day in Vancouver, when I found myself snowed in, I decided to take the opportunity to paint a frosty scene I had photographed in our neighbourhood the winter before.
For many of my paintings, it is the interplay of light and shadow that really interests me. I like finding that stained-glass quality in nature whether it’s sunlight through leaves or that dark, almost iron-wrought impression that the trees and their shadows have here.
