The colder weather is finally biting here in Dublin! In between some home improvements I have been continuing to paint when I have the chance. I have set up a new desk area by my window, so I’m all set to look out at the snowy balcony should the occasion come. We already have a robin who likes to visit, and appreciates some nuts to help him brave the winter.
After a more realistic winter painting last time, I’m back into a little bit of fantasy with this Ski Lifts in the Snow painting. I have ridden in cable cars up into the Swiss Alps, (an amazing experience) so it is not 100% fictional. However, I had a hot chicken dinner and a tasty Swiss beer at the top and then rode the cable car back down, so no skiing for me I’m afraid!
I do love the romance of the idea of a skiing holiday. Christmas movies in general are an absolute favourite for me. I loved ‘The Christmas Shepherd’ with Teri Polo, which I just watched recently (Christmas cheer plus a gorgeous German Shepherd Dog for good measure). Anyway, I hope everyone else out there is getting into the spirit of the season too!
