Folk Art Snow Picture



I spent Christmas day painting this little picture...I should have waited to varnish it so that there would not be a glare from the flash of the camera. I am pleased with how it turned out. It is a gift for a friend who loves riding her snow mobile. 

I am pleased with how it turned out and I am looking forward to having more creative time this year :)
Have a great day!

p.s. I just realized as I was staring at this post that I missed painting Mr. Snowman's stick arms! Whoops! That is why I love having a picture to look at. I usually catch the details I missed.

    1. It was so funny because my daughter said she could hardly go to sleep the night before and I asked her why and she replied, "because I was excited for tomorrow (Christmas) morning!" Lol!
      I remember being that way when I was younger too :)
      I like the way this painting turned out much better. I have not painted in a very long time and I have to get back in to the groove lol!

  5. Marie, this is fantastic! I don't know how you do it but you have the gift to paint, for sure. I hope you're able to spend lots more time painting this coming year -- and then showing us. Happy New Year to you and the family. xoxo

    1. HI Peggy,

      Awww thanks! I really enjoy painting and these little pictures are so much fun! I plan on spending more
      time painting, stitching and reading this year. The last 3 months have been so devoted to work and now it is time for me :)
      I used to have a friend that would say "Happy New You!" instead of "Happy New Year!" because it is about us becoming new each year...I like that! :)
      So, Happy New Year/You and your family too! xo <3

  7. I know for me it is the little things that bring so much joy...
    today I was walking along in the snow holding a hot steaming cup of tea I had just purchased and it so happened that where I was walking I could hear a few old Christmas songs still being played. I had a moment of complete gratitude for having my hot tea, seeing the snow fall and hearing old Christmas tunes...it's the little things :)
    Thank you xo
