The winter blues rescue: A happy little collection
I'm kinda dealing with the winter blues over here. It's dark when I leave for work, it's dark when I get home from work. I now have to bundle up and wear tights with all my cute skirts. It's making me grouchy and home girl does not like that!
So, here is a little collection of mine that always makes me smile and kicks my blues (winter blues that is) away. These small little paintings fall in with my love of all things miniature. I just love how the painting wraps around the canvas and the little details of my largest original, like paper cut outs used for the leaves and fabric used for the clouds. I first found the PA local artist Lisa Arkus at Harrisburg's riverfront ArtsFest a few years ago and I bought only a print. Hey I was fresh outta college and super frugal! The next year I bought the little bird painting and when I went back the following year she was not there! Majorly bummed. I looked for her every year since and luckily I rediscovered her when I went to the Mt Gretna Arts weekend this year. I finally bought the large original I wanted for all these years.
What items or activity help you beat these nasty winter blues?
