“Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow, and, driving o’er the fields,
Seems nowhere to alight: the whited air
Hides hills and woods, the river and the heaven,
And veils the farm-house at the garden’s end.
All day the gusty north-wind bore
The loosening drift its breath before;
Low circling round its southern zone,
The sun through dazzling snow-mist shone.
No church-bell lent its Christian tone
To the savage air, no social smoke
Curled over woods of snow-hung oak.
A solitude made more intense
By dreary-voicëd elements,
The shrieking of the mindless wind,
The moaning tree-boughs swaying blind,
And on the glass the unmeaning beat
Of ghostly finger-tips of sleet
. excerpt…R.W.Emerson..

The expression is always that snow falls down…in fact snow more than often falls sideways…it blows and drifts and unlike a rainstorm is mostly silent…Watercolour on Arches Not Paper

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    I see the presence of the snow in the air. Yes it is true, it does most often fall sideways, and is silent so becomes part of the atmosphere like in your work. Lovely work Janis.

  • Thanks so much MuiLing…yes it’s blowing snow in the painting, so you don’t see any flakes…the kind of snow where you stay in till it’s over..

    Well we finally got the year’s first snow Janis. It wasn’t much, probably around an inch, but all the same it was enough to cause excitement in coastal NC. Beautiful work Janis.

  • I can imagine that if you don’t usually get snow that it must have been quite exciting…glad you like the painting Jim..thanks so much..
