Snow


The view from the kitchen window changes so fast sometimes. Just when we were getting over our disappointment with the non-existing winter, and starting to look forward to spring instead, the snow comes. It´s presence wipes out all the colours on the houses below. Suddenly they are all the same shade of some unnamed yellow-gray-green... And still. It´s so beautiful. And it´s amazing that the light of day can make such a huge difference on what we see.

That's one of the beautiful things about being an artist...you see the magic in the "everyday". Lovely color palette...lovely writing!

Really lovely. You captured how the snow makes the landscape so muted, yet so beautiful. However, it is time for the snow to go away and for spring to come to all of us.

I'm enjoying your sketches. And I wish I could visit Stockholm.

This lovely soft palette conveys the cold weather just perfectly.

Yes, how the snow washes out the color. Been in snow here for months now and the colors of spring are practically a shock. Still waiting for the shock as when the snow melts, we are left with brown and gray and mud. Thank God for color.

And we were just getting over the disappointment of no summer in Sydney and suddently we had two weeks of it. I love this image - so subtle in the colours.
