Smoky Mountain Snowfall Video

It’s almost unbelievable to think that only a week ago, we were blanketed in snow here in the Smoky Mountains, our house looked like a cupcake topped with piles of fluffy white, buttercream frosting! Now it’s all gone and a couple of evenings ago, it was mild enough we were able to eat supper on the back porch! We sat there for awhile afterwards, watching the setting sun bathe the skies in pinks, while listening to our resident Screech Owl, Shivers, calling with her softly fluctuating “whooooo”, as she sat on a limb mere feet away! I listened to her until she dropped from where she perched, silently flying away. It was a beautiful experience to say the least!

As promised, here’s the video (above) of our Christmas snow adventures that I know you’re going to thoroughly enjoy! Now you can walk through the snow and go sledding with us from the warmth of your living room. The funny thing is now that it’s all melted, it almost looks surreal when we watch the video, even though we experienced it in person! And since everyone loved the snow photos last week, I thought I’d share the ones from Christmas Eve with you, which are ethereally beautiful in their own way. So enjoy this photo journey!

~ Here’s What’s Happening in the Studio ~

I finished my painting of the Wood Thrush on silk this past week, and I believe that’s the last one needed to complete the collection for my poetry book which I’ll be publishing soon. We enjoy the songs of these beautiful birds in our yard in the Spring and Summer, and it sounds even more amazing when the air is heavy, as their beautiful song seems to last forever before slowly drifting off.

Wes finished his latest painting as well this past week, of a gorgeous little Slate-colored Junco perched amongst a thick clump of Spanish moss that we saw last January at Brookgreen Gardens when we were there for the opening of our Exquisite Miniatures Exhibition. Here in Tennessee, the juncos always come down to the lower elevations when there is snow and it gets really frigid in the upper elevations, hence the title, “A True Snowbird”.
