I am sure all of you have experienced at least once in your life the glorious feeling of warm winter sun on your face filtered through the trees.

When this painting was posted on Facebook one commenter mentioned that this scenery reminded her the word Apricity.

I love how you describe your feelings when you look at this painting.
