First Day of Snow in Nova Scotia calls for some HYGGE

It's a winter wonderland here in Halifax, NS this afternoon. The type of pretty snow that covers the tree branches like icing with big beautiful flakes quietly floating around. Ahhh....the first day of snow. 

It's a great day to take comfort inside with a warm cuppa, a sweater or warm blanket, make a delicious meal and settle down to watch the US election in a state of anxiety and dismay....oops..we mean....forget all that and just relax! Everything is going to be okay. 

Here are some artworks still available by our gallery artists that can bring calm to your home or office year round. Winter inspired for a wintery day, of course...

This beauty is an acrylic painting by Isobel Hamilton, and is so life like that it's been mistaken as an actual candle in our gallery windows when it's been on display there. So cozy and warm!  

This painting of a selkie sweater by Briana Corr Scott may inspire you to put away your summer clothing and bring out those comfy wool sweaters for evenings like this or perhaps take up knitting before the year's end. This painting is the original work, that appears in her recent publication by Nimbus Publishing too.

This hand embroidered stunner is by Yoko White and no winter inspired posting would be complete without including her works of the night skies. Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? In this artwork, the night sky dances and glows to life!

If you've visited the gallery recently, you may have noticed this painting hanging around...still waiting for it's forever home. It is simply one of the most breathtaking paintings of winter and captures that cozy warm feeling of the season. It's by Mark Brennan....come take a peek when the storm subsides.

There's no better time than today to stop what you are doing and relax on the couch with a good book, a box of chocolates and watch the snowflakes or the end of the world and stress-eat...oops...we mean....just relax. It's going to be okay. :-). Kim Danio's miniature sculptures made from re-purposed items are filled with creativity and imagination that delight all ages.
