I am linking this post to Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.  I admit it, I LOVE SNOW,  I know I am in the minority here, but there is something about snow this time of year that just seems to refreshen everything. So until I have the real thing, I have started hanging my winter snow paintings. This one is I purchased on ebay many years ago before paintings started going crazy price wise in the art department. I fell in love at first site. It came from Canada and is my favorite of my snow paintings. The thick texture of the paint gives it dimention and depth. It is hard to tell by the photo's. The way the artist did the shadows from the trees is incredible. I cannot draw stick people, so this painting really impressed me. It is a very large painting and is over my sofa in my living room from fall til spring. I think when you have art that makes a statement in a room you and anyone else who enters does not see the flaws (or dust and clutter) as much when you have a bold painting as the first thing they see.  I have 3 more snow paintings and 2 of the three have horses. There is just something about horses and snow!!!  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Cindy for the other wonderful Show and Tell post this week.


  1. Thank you for your lovely comment. I must say, you made me soooo homesick! My parents have a very similar painting hanging in their living room. I had forgotten about it. It is my dad's favorite piece of art. And yes, you are right! It is very hard to paint horses. I really love your blog. I have you in my favorites! Greetings, Claudia from FrenchCountry

  2. That picture is beautiful! I am with you on the snow thing. For some reason I just love paintings with snow scenes. they are so relaxing to me.

  3. I think your painting is just beautiful! I noticed one of your older posts about the decorated eggs. My grandma used to make ornaments just like that with crushed egg shell, too! I think a dress form decorated with moss would look amazing!!! Thanks for visiting!

  4. Wow!! Your art work is fabulous. I love snow art work also. Thank you so much for visiting My Cozy Corner. I'm so happy to visit your blog and see the beautiful paintings.
