In the Bleak Midwinter...


The icy nights have rendered the landscape breathtakingly beautiful. We woke this morning to a freezing fog just lifting. It is as if we lived inside a glass dome, which has suddenly and silently shattered into millions and millions of tiny shards, and softly rained down upon us.




I have been working away, making some new sets of ACEO limited edition prints . I hope to have them finished and ready to list tomorrow. The goats are done, but the new crow ones are delayed, as I ran out of best quality paper, and am awaiting a new delivery.

Breathtaking pictures! I love the goat paintings and have always wanted one myself.... or two! Its a choice between having a vegetable garden and orchard (potential breakouts would be a disaster) OR goats... veg patch won! I still want a goat though.....

Have a soft spot for goats, being a capricorn I guess that would be right. Beautiful work Danielle.

It's funny how Winters, Springs & Summers come around every year, but I never get tired of appreciating their beauty.
Gorgeous pics Danielle.
And I look forward to the ACEOs too!

I wanted to stop by and say thank you for your nice comments on my blog and I am so glad I did. I have really enjoyed reading your blog and looking at your beautiful artwork this morning! What gorgeous pictures. I raise Boer goats in the U.S. so of course I am biased but I have to say the goat paintings are some of my favorites.
