    Love the St. Petersburg, The Ferry Across the River – Ivan Aivazovsky, 1870.. and a lot of the others , especially the last one with sheep… in winter you often get that strange bright pink in the sky,, its a cold feeling.. and of course sheep,, idyllic, such gentle creatures,, but oh the light in that painting.. !!
