For many years I worked as a nanny for a family in Minneapolis, MN. This is the view from the back of the house where I worked. Charles Schulz (the cartoonist who invented Snoopy) at one time lived in the house that is in this painting. It was just a few doors down from where I worked.
I intended for the painting to have a very welcoming feel, even in the coldest of the winter season.
