The Snow Home image is an oil painting featuring a snowy foot bridge to a cozy farmhouse on the hill. This is the golden hour when everything is bathed in beautiful golden light. During the golden hour, which is just after sunrise or just before sunset, the light is rosier and softer due to the low angle of the sun. There is an opposite light effect just before sunrise or just after sunset that is known as the blue hour.
This farmhouse is my husband’s childhood home in Washington state.
Meteorological winter is defined by meteorologists as the lowest three consecutive calendar months with the lowest average temperatures. The three month winter period changes, depending on how far north the area is located.
Astronomical winter is defined the position of the earth in its solar orbit. Winter solstice usually signals the beginning of the astronomical winter and the vernal equinox signals the end of it. The coldest weather in the Northern Hemisphere usually follows the shortest day of daylight, winter solstice.
Ecological winter does not use calendar timings at all, focusing instead of the period of hibernating dormancy exhibited by biological forms, both plant and animal.

Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope and gratitude is my lifelong passion and gift for the earth, hence the name of my art business, For the Earth. My mother painted in oils when I was young and encouraged my own drawing, painting and handcrafting in all forms. My father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result of these loving influences, I am a lifelong student of both mediums. I am grateful to my wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson, for training my eye and technique. I hope you will enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed its creation.
