This scene is definitely rural.  And seemingly more so with a heavy layer of snowy-ness. 

It’s a snowy afternoon, and just a while earlier, the snow stopped for a bit, 
and it’s very cold, 
very still, and very quiet. 

Almost a somber hush –

But despite that, there’s activity motivated by the wind, seen in a brave lonely tree, and the field grasses.
They may be muted,
but they will not be silenced!  And a sense of peacefulness abounds.

This was a most challenging painting because my colors were so greyed-down. 
My usual tendency is toward much brighter colors!   But here, the muted tones
enhance the calming effect of the painting.
