Christmas Robin

What I like the most about this painting is the contrast between a cold winter day enhanced by the delicate falling snow and warm colors of the robin and berries. Snow falling slowly from the sky is always something I wait for in the winter. I love this magical atmosphere where there is a lot of snow everywhere, everything is so calm and peaceful. In this painting I wanted to convey robin’s feeling of cosiness. Even though the snow folds are cold I have a feeling that he feels very comfortable on this branch.


I think most of us associate this flower with Christmas. Its vibrant, red petals harmonize wonderfully with the deep green leaves creating a complementary color composition.

Winter Scene

Isn’t it pure magic? Again, like in the Christmas Robin painting, I wanted to portray a magical feeling of winter atmosphere. This is a very simple painting which can be altered in many different ways according to your vision. You can easily change the colors or the composition to create new, beautiful images. Because this is a very easy scene to paint you can paint several of these at a time and create interesting cards for your family and friends.
