The tenth day of Ralph Hulett’s Christmas

A snow scene that contains quite a bit of green, for a somewhat different effect.

In 1946, Hulett went on a weeks-long painting (and sightseeing) sojourn through New England. Outside of that, there weren't a lot of trips to that part of the U.S.A. So if you look for images "drawn from life" in the Christmas cards, the one above would either be from '46, during his honeymoon vacation, or pulled from his imagination.

Probably the latter.

(As is often the case, there is foreground framing with birds and tree branch.)
