Looking for a painting I once borrowed from a library

Painting filter: can you help me track down a painting? I borrowed it from a local public library years ago (they have since stopped loaning out art, don't know why) and can't recall the title or artist.

Here's what I do remember. It is the view from the inside of a building, most likely a barn, through a large open door. It is snowing and there is a man with his back to the viewing, standing and watching the snow. The colors are very muted, grey, dark green, more grey. I get the impression that there may have been a courtyard, and for some reason I also think that it is colonial era (if not when it was painted, then the era being painted). In my memory, it feels almost like a Wyeth, but I don't see it in any inventory. The overall effect is very calming and comforting. I'd love to buy a print for mrMyrtle, but I have to find it first. thanks for suggestions
