Winter in the water village

This painting of my wife dates back about 10 years ago - before we met. It depicts a scene in one of the small ancient water villages around Shanghai, some of which unfortunately have become tourist traps in more recent years. I still remember the strange feeling when I first saw this one, as we lived in Singapore at the time, about as far removed from snow as you can imagine.
