SNOWFLAKE

The Winter season is just about to arrive. A season of rest and deep thought. One thing that I have always loved about Winter is the snowfall. It is truly enchanting and full of magic. Have you ever listened to the snow as it falls? There is nothing like it and I dedicate this painting to the wonder of Winter. It is called, "Snowflake". I don't have a story for it just yet, but feel free to share your thoughts if you'd like.

This painting was created using watercolors and gesso on Arches 140lb hot press paper. It measures 8x11 inches.

One other note, I would like to thank the beautiful, Jessica, for modeling as the Snowflake Fairy. You can find her here.

May your day be a blessing and may you be a blessing to your day.

James I am so pleased with my very own beautiful "Snowflake" and I am happy she arrived in time for me to wrap and put under the tree ... just for me!
I will hang her in my studio so I can look at her every day whilst I am working.
Warmest hugs and Happy Christmas,
