Well, in case you didn't know, I live in Buffalo, NY. Actually south of Buffalo, NY in snow country. He have had an epic storm this week, and yes, epic is the right word here, that has dropped 4 feet of snow on us in 36 hours. So the last 3 days have been snow days!!!! All the schools are closed, including my college, there are travel bans so no one can drive on the roads, and even if we wanted to drive we can't get out of our driveway! So it felt appropriate that I post snow art and snow quotes today:) The above painting is an oil I did a few years ago and the quotes below I found on the internet. Since we can't beat the snow we might as well enjoy it!
This quote is a good one because we have spent the last three days at home with a fire in the fire place and something yummy cooking on the stove. Movies, playing cards, and painting are the things we have been doing to pass the time.
I love this one because winter is really beautiful in a silent way and you need to be quiet and in the moment to appreciate it. Snow actually has so many colors in it and snow covered forms can be turned into anything. Let your imagination run wild. Do you know how many creatures I see in my yard from the lumps of snow that have formed there...I could create a whole story from it. Maybe that's what I'll do today:)
