The above painting is titled "Winter Reflections".

I’ve read that winter starts in the counties of western Maryland. I’m sure many in the northwest of the U.S. could strongly debate that isn’t the case. However, Maryland’s first experience with winter typically does start in western Maryland.

Western Maryland is more rural than the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area, where most of the population of Maryland reside. The area is noted for streams, rivers, lakes and mountainous terrain. There are numerous state parks and outdoor activities that offer a restful relief from the hustle bustle of the larger populated metropolitan areas.

Western Maryland has some very scenic areas that stand out in a winter setting. This painting is based upon a scene you might encounter in a western Maryland morning hike.

Regardless of your location, it is my hope the painting offers you an opportunity to vicariously relax by momentarily escaping your daily pressures.
