A while ago I called a bunch of artist-friends and asked them to share their favorite winter paintings for an article celebrating the winter solstice. I didn’t expect to make it a series at the time, but the post was too much fun to put together and I learned way too much not to try it again.
To be honest, when I started I worried that spring would not have the gravitas that winter does, however now that it’s here the exuberance of spring is a delight. It has been a mild but seemingly endless winter here in the American northeast, but the promise of warmer weather, longer days, and a gentle breeze are irresistible.
Without further ado, here are the joys of re-awakening.
