When we walk, we usually follow the path. Even in the snow, we stay side by side, usually on the right side. So, who stepped out of the norm? Must be a dog. They don't worry about which side they're on, how cold it is, they just always love going for a walk. When our dogs were still alive, we had to spell w-a-l-k if we were only thinking about going out. If they heard the word, they were ready.

Once again, nice shadows in the snow, and beautiful contrast warm/cool with the brush. Animals definitely learn the words they want! My cats understand the work 'cookie' (although to them it means 'cat treats').

I don't recognize this scene, but I have probably been there with you. What is causing the red in the background?

Natalie, the "red" is an area of rocks and bushes done w/ terra rosa and yellow ochre. It is not red like that in the painting, just the photo. Not sure why it came out that way; the colors are true in the rest of the photo.
