Winter Wonderland

These are not recent photos, in fact they are from 2103 but we've had some snow falling over the last few days and it was a reminder of these snowy trees at Sunniside, Newcastle upon Tyne.
 I think the snow has almost gone now in this part of the UK

I've painted 6 postcards for the Twitter Art Exhibit, global artists donate art in aid of charity. This year it is in Canada to benefit Urban Native Youth Association.
You can only send one so I have a decision to make. I've discounted the cat and I think I know which one I will send. Will you agree I wonder?
