Winter, don't you ever forget us?

Well well, it is quite a cold day here in Québec: -15C.  Bring the warm wool socks, the (faux)fur-trimmed mittens and the unflattering winter coats! And even dressed in an Eskimo-like manner, the very coward little cold-sensitive I am was afraid to leave home this morning. Once outside, I had to admit that it was not really that bad, but my hatred of winter is not so easily tamed. 

Here is a painting of myself, only at a different time and with a different face...

James Tissot, The Fireplace,1869
