SNOWFALL

Maybe it’s because I grew up in the south… but I can’t get enough of snow. It’s always been so magical to me! I remember not being able to sleep as a kid if there were as much as flurries in the forecast… it felt like Christmas!

I’ve lived in Boston for four years now, and the enchantment of snow has yet to wear off. It’s one of the most peaceful things to wake up before dawn, or go out late in the night to walk in fresh snow.

Lucky for me, we have snow in the forecast today… and hopefully many more this winter!

Do you guys love snow as much as I do?

P.S. I found the most gorgeous acrylic paint yesterday (used on the curtain above). It’s called Pearl Mica Flakes.

    Hi Katie!
    I have a confession to make: though I’m 27 years old… I’ve never seen snow in my life! Really! I live far away from a place were is always snowing, but I’ve never seen with my own eyes! Someday I hope I will! :)

    I hope ‘snow’ is not like ‘Santa Claus': I hope it’s real! :D

    When I lived in Chicago I loved the fresh snow. Walking through the snow to catch a train never got old=0)

    You inspire me to paint new things everyday!

    Growing up in Maine and now living in Stockholm I have seen a lot of snow in my life. I love the romance of it! I did spend a few years in Florida, and found it really boring with out seasons. I must confess I adore snow, but get pretty tired of it by March April. Winters are just a bit too long here in Sweden. Nothing beats that snow crunch though! xo Kristina

    I am from a tropical country, and now studying in Ohio! I feel the same way as you do! Snow is so magical, and so beautiful. I still remember the first time I saw snow!

    I love snow! It makes me so excited even though I grew up with it. It’s always pretty (even if only for a moment in NYC) and I love how quiet it is too, there is something so tranquil about a soft falling snow.

    I’ve admired your paintings for awhile now, but this gorgeous post inspired me to comment! Keep up the beautiful work =)

    This illustration is SO. BEAUTIFUL.
    I love snow too! I grew up in a snowy area but now living in the Philippines so I probably won’t see snow for awhile!

    Your watercolour techniques stun me every.single.time. I really love this painting. I can almost feel the fabrics that you’ve rendered.

    Snow is gorgeous, but I can definitely get tired of it after awhile! #canadianwinters

    I still get excited when the temperature drops below 40. We take what winter weather we can get in Texas.
