When Michael of #ScribblePicnic gave the prompt for blanket this week my thoughts went to cuddling a warm afghan on a cold winter’s night. Then I saw Pooh Bear snuggling up with his blankie. But finally I decided to paint a quick watercolour of a snow blanket.
Soon we will be heading to warmer climes – getting away from the coming winter. Snow is beautiful. I love seeing snow covering the lawn. If only it would stay on the lawn and not go on the roads. Driving in snow is not one of my favourite activities. And after 7 years of escaping it I am afraid I am no longer a seasoned winter driver.
Here is my watercolour rendition of “Blanket of Snow”.
That’s from memory. No picture to look at. But I know as the drifts pile up, the white snow becomes less pure, dirtier.
I love reading Psalm 147:16
He (God) spreads snow like a blanket
and scatters frost like dust. (Good News Bible)
And you can pile that blanket of snow higher and higher!
We have some gorgeous pictures from our winters past but most of them would need to be scanned. I found the two pictures on this post on my computer.
