snow day scene

As promised, here is my work of art of a snow scene in Central Park.  I absolutely love the way this turned out as it shows a certain energy with everyone vying for a little parcel of hill to sled down. I added this original to my etsy shop.  How charming would it be framed and hung as a souvenir to remind one of the joys of a snow day.

I plan to try to add an original to etsy more often.  I must admit that I was smiling all the while I worked on this little gem.  As always, I am most appreciative of your comments.  Thank-you dear fans.

Patricia,
I LOVE this!!!!! It brings me back to when I was a child and we there was a spot every family would go to. We could walk there from my family home. Such a wonderful memory.
You really outdid yourself!

Oh, Patricia....it is fabulous!!!!! I think this could be a set of notecards. Perhaps part of a "winter season" set? We have to chat!

Oh yes, I agree with Cheryl. It has a child-like feel to it somehow, when life is all so much more simple. Absolutely love it - it's a "make me happy" painting.

Have you ever thought of putting together a calendar? This would be a great January or February!

Elizabeth,
Yes, this is going to be my year to get lots of great things that I know I need to do to up my game. Everyone asks "how can I get a piece of pve" so a calendar, notes, a book, original artwork-
I feel so lucky to create happiness and share it.
thanks dear,
pve
