Painting snow on day 53 of 172 days of giving up sweets

In the Texas hill country, snow is usually nonexistent and that’s the way I like it having moved from Colorado, my snowy home for 20 years. I don’t miss driving in it or shoveling it or slipping down on it.

But I do miss the tranquility of large flakes flitting, blanketing neighborhoods in cool blues. Then there’s that Gilmore Girl breathable cold sweetness right before a snow. Or red cheeked returning sledders, huddling hot chocolate.

So I wanted to try painting snow. Oh what fun on a sunny 70 degree Texas day.

Merry Christmas Eve from the Texas Hill Country!!!

Christmas, the “sweetest” time in memory of old.

  1. Merry Christmas! 🎄
    The lack of winter is one reason I moved to Colorado from here in 1999 and will move back eventually. I loved the 4 seasons and waking up to it snowing was so peaceful to me! We all want different things!

  2. Nice painting. We have very little snow this year in Cornwall. We got 4cm today which brings us up to 7cm on the ground now. We traditionally have a 92% chance of a White Christmas, which we barely made tonight. But it is finally getting cold at -14C tonight.

I’d love to hear what you have to say.
