Winter Art

I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? Then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep now, darlings, till the summer comes againLewis Carroll

Hello and Happy December! With the Winter Solstice approaching we decided to share some of our favorite examples of winter artwork to ring in the new season!

Even though December is crazy and the holidays make us rush around with stress like headless chickens after the holiday storm the new year brings with it a chance to slow down and there is a bit of an underlying feeling of calm when the weather turns cold and we hibernate in the house. As a New Englander it’s hard for me to imagine a winter not buried under piles of snow. The magic and the quiet the comes with that coat of fresh white Not going to miss the shoveling though! Not one bit!. Winter is steeped in so much tradition. People read the same winter stories, watch the same holiday specials, enjoy the same winter rituals with family and friends.





Did you know that some ice crystals are formed from plant bacteria up in the clouds? The bacteria have a protein that gives them ice forming powers. It’s called Bio-precipitation. I don’t think it should stop you from catching snowflakes on your tongue.
