the little gift-picture done for Marta a sweet wonderful girl and my dear friend from studies (and a brilliant jockey BTW) on the ocasion of her moving to a new house and a housewarming party:) the original look much better framed:nod:

the title is not made up by me actually^^; i took the title from a very beautiful Ethan Canin's short story under the same title from the book "Star Food" that i've recently read thanks to my lovely dear friendwho gave me the book:dance::bow::hug:

The falling snow on the city and top-hatted jockey give it a sort Dickens-ish feel. I can imagine seeing this in a book of fairy tales I would hope to read to my children and grandchildren. :hug:

This is such a simple yet beautiful illustration you just can't help but press the little gold-starred button. The moment I looked at it it really pulled me back to when I was a little girl and my mum read me bed-time stories of the Ice Queen in winter. Aaah- thank you for that wonderful moment and wonderful art : ).

It's such gorgeous work! I wish I could do things like that for my best friend - her horse is her life and this sort of picture would mean all the world to her.

Sadly, all I can do are pencil sketches.

This is one scene that I wouldn't mind being in. So lovely. It seems like the deep dark of the night, and the soft and steady snowfall are quietly observing such intersting travellers. Beautiful, beautiful work. :heart:

I'm not sure what this reminds me of, but it really strikes a nostalgic chord. The stylization, peppery snow, and composition are all eerie, and delightfully fun to look at.
This will definitely be taking a place in my favorites gallery!
