The carriage travels the hard packed snow of the
country road. The quaint scattered houses along the lane
and the heaped up sparkling snow, the broken
down country fence and the beautiful yellow winter sky.
The first time I ever witnessed a yellow sky, like this, in the winter,
in the daytime was last winter. Until then, I had only ever seen them
on paintings and such....
It was quite a lovely sight to actually behold.
I love to look at the sky at the different seasons of the year.
This painting, along with my 'White Horse Inn'
painting were both from cards that I recieved long ago.
The scene was so engaging, that I had to try to paint it.
And so I did, changing many of the subtleties of the original
but still keeping with the theme.
I have printed my version of the painting onto heavy,
feather-edged cardstock cards. The cards are blank inside
and come with matching feather-edged envelopes.
As you can see from the picture, I have softened up the edges
and smattered them with a generous amount of ultra fine
crystal glitter, ya know, for that frosty look.
These cards and many other any occasion cards are
available in my ETSY shop.
I don't know who the original artist of the painting, but
if you do, please let me know. Thanks....
