Potato chip size flakes of snow were drifting down.

I grabbed my camera and tripod
and began walking around my
small town looking for a
picture opportunity.

As I marked each step with my size 14 snow boots, the sun began setting
and I was losing my perfect light.

As I walked up the viaduct I
spotted an old bordered up
and abandoned house
on the secnd level.

The street was filled with snow covered parked cars, but it reminded me of
a scene right out of Norman
Americana, so I took it!

I spent many months meditating on how to present this image in its best light.

While processing it in my computer, one evening, I decided first of all
to remove all the cars.

I transformed the plywood boards in
front into windows with amber
colored light flowing through.

After several more hours of artwork
it was translated from an ordinary photograph to an Impressionism
piece of art.
