Yes, I am going to be another winter whiner. If you live anywhere near New England, you’ve probably heard mass moaning about the unprecedented cold and seemingly constant snowfall. In fact, there may be one giant nationwide grumble reverberating from state to state since this winter has taken its toll on many places where winters are usually mild. I heard a rumor that the only state that hasn’t had snow this year is Hawaii. No wonder we’ve got the widespread winter blues.
It’s yet another snow day in our school district, which means they will start to tack days onto the end of the school year, or I’ve heard the possibility that the snow days may be threatening April vacation. No one is happy about this. Even my daughter groaned that school was cancelled today. And I have to admit that snow blowing the driveway is getting really old.
Okay. I’m done whining. Thanks for letting me vent.
Now, in an effort to curb these winter doldrums, I thought I would share some images that I think help bring out the beauty of winter. We often stop appreciating beauty when it is set before us over and over again. I still think snow is beautiful even if I am a little tired of the hassles it can bring with it.
So, I hope you can put your annoyances aside for a brief view of winter through my eyes…
You may recognize some of the images since I’ve used a few in previous posts. All of the above are photographs that I’ve digitally and artistically enhanced to resemble paintings. You can view more of our art at Red Barn Artworks, or you can click on an image for gift information.
How are you feeling about winter? I know it’s not even the end of February yet, and I’m supposed to be a hardy New Englander, but winter did seem to come unusually early this year.
I hope you enjoyed this little winter pick-me-up!
Until next time,
