Okay, so we won't have a white christmas this year, again.
Luckily we'll always still have paintings.
Like the ones by Peter Brook (1927-2009), who lived and worked in Yorkshire, where it is still possible to get snowed in now and then.
His landscapes are not of the Winterwonderland variety however, but rather show snow as it actually mostly is: cold and wet and miserable.
Even if it goes against my romantic temperament to say so.
