Van Auken on the painting above:

I’m a little tired of idealized snow in paintings. Snow, like Christmas, is great fun for kids, but the novelty wears thin after a few hours for me. I want to paint snow that turns into a muddy mess, that makes us late for work, and snow that makes simple things like walking into a chore that must be properly prepared for.
