"Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand."

Henry David Thoreau

The above painting was done by my Grandma Rita, who loved Currier and Ives.  Thanks, Grandma, for teaching me how to paint!  I wish you could see how I share the same passion!

What a lovely thing to treasure - there's so much going on in this painting I can see you could get lost in it for hours. One of those paintings where you can fashion stories from every part of the scene. Wonderful detail.
Wow Carrie..fabulous art by your special Grandmother!! beautiful! and how special to have her art to enjoy and treasure!Thanks for sharing this beautiful heart-touching post and this wonderfully talented soul!
Thanks! I grew up with this painting and so you can imagine the stories I have fashioned about it over the years!! My Grandma's house was filled with art that has subconsciously formed my style and passion for painting.
