Winter Paintings




The week between Christmas and New Years. Lazy, Laaazy days. We are eating too much, playing with new toys and napping as much as possible. In between I am looking at American Impressionist landscape paintings. It's because NYC during the cold winter is basically a bummer. No pretty winter landscape to enjoy just black snow piles dotted with litter. There is something about winter landscapes that allow me slow down and think peacefully. And as for surviving a NYC winter...a good remedy is to simply look up. Remember to look up at the sky often.
Artists from the top; Walter Laurnt Palmer, John Henry Twachtman, Ernest Lawson. All images found here.

The reason you slow down and think peacefully during winter is because that is what nature is doing. It is slowing down and thinking about Spring.
