Silent. . .

Strange how the world seems to hold it's breath, just before it starts to snow.  There's that eery silence, not a bird twitter, not a rustling sound in the hedges, just quiet, then those wonderful magical icy crystals start to fall.


It's not snowing here yet, thank goodness. I love the snow when I'm on holiday, not when I have to get to work... Hope your having Fun and Nonsense this week...xxx

and when it starts to fall, if you close your eyes and just listen, you can hear the soft papery sound of tiny flakes landing on the world around you...

Yes, it's just as you say, Catherine :) And I like snow too, but if I don't have to leave from home.

Your wonderful illustration makes me so happy and your words make me holds the breath, because today I felt the same just before the first big snow came :) big hug from Conny

I love this painting. This is my first time on your blog so I'm looking through a lot of post and I just have to say, I love your work. There is a whimsical-ness (is that a word...lol) and a simple pureness to the faces but the eyes and the expressions say so much. Beautiful. Can't wait to see more.
