– I thought I should paint something wintry and I like to paint landscapes. In my opinion, snow landscapes have something surreal and look like they come right out of a fairytale. It´s like the snow envelops the world in silence and peace. From one day to the next we live in another world.
As a reference I used a small photo of a calendar from the town, I live in.
At the beginning, I used scotch tape to create the frame, which has a great effect and makes the painting look a litle bit noble, I think.
Although I´m generally not a fan of plain landscapes, I like this one.
