4 Sources for Beautiful Winter Landscapes

No matter what you feel about winter you have to admit that in its purest form it creates a powerfully beautiful landscape.  There is no lovelier Christmas card than an illustration of a cozy home beside a decorated tree with twinkling lights, stars shining above and a blanket of pristine  snow covering all.

One of my favourite times of year to be home is the prelude to Christmas,  when shopping has been done, baking is under control, and the decorations are in place. The house feels warmer somehow with smiling Santas and snowmen hanging out in rooms softly lit by candles nestled amid garlands.  Sitting snuggled in a chair looking out at the winter landscape increases the sense of hominess for me.

Even after the festive season and the accompanying accoutrements have been packed away for another year, when all that remains is that cold blanket of white outside the window,  there is something oddly comforting about peering out the window at a snowy landscape while cocooned indoors wrapped in a blanket,  sipping a hot chocolate. These collections of illustrations reflect those perfect views:
