Russian landscape painter Isaac Levitan (1860-1900) painted Evening on the Volga with large stratocumulus clouds above the calm river. Levitan was born in Lithuania and his family moved to Moscow, Russia where he learned to paint landscapes filled with emotion.

Solitude
by Sally, age 68, England

Solitude
Snow of solitude
and silver white.
Sunlight,yellow pale
in a silent sky.
Drift together
weather tied
and cold
as the old year stills
and purifies its soul.
