I had another opportunity to paint out of doors the other day, this time it was at the "Golden Hour" which in these parts at this time of the year is around 4:30 pm. The temperature hovered around minus 13 Celsius. The subject is Wellington Creek, which because of the colder weather, is frozen around half of its length through the park. I loved the colours in the ice and the silence of the place, hence the title. It alludes to one of my favourite Van Morrison songs by the same title. I have a hunch that besides me the only other creatures that enjoy the place are the deer, rabbits and coyotes.
