White Horse Inn

There is just something about this frosty night scene that
draws me right in.The moonlit evening,the silently falling snow,
 the  ride down the winding snow covered lane through the
rustic little village to the White Horse Inn.
 A server greets you with a warm beverage, maybe
hot buttered rum, or some warm spiced wine.

Snow scenes are probably my favorite kind of paintings.
I have often practiced painting by looking at other interesting
paintings and trying to do them in my particular style.
 (whatever that is).

This painting was inspired by a card that someone gave me a
 long time ago. It was so intriguing to me that I had to try to paint it.
 I have changed many of the subtleties on the painting,
 but have kept the general thought.

I have printed my painting onto heavy,
feather edged cardstock cards. They are all blank inside
and come with matching feather edged envelopes.
I have added lots of ultra fine crystal glitter to add to
the frosty moonlit look.

For a while, I tried to find out who the original artist was, because
I loved their style and wanted to look at other of their works.
I never did discover the artist, if you know, please let me know.

These cards and many other all occasion cards are
available at my ETSY store.
