The Edmonton Jewish Cemetery is almost directly across the street from the building where I work. I took a picture of it (actually several) from our parking lot the other day when we had our first major snow storm of the winter. A pastel painting was the next logical step.
The picture was taken about noon in the middle of a snow storm and was very white! This painting is severely muted and looks more like an evening or night scene. I think I like it better this way.
