Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.

Winter snows from George Gardner Symons

Posted by Charley Parker at 11:55 pm

George Gardner Symons
For those in the U.S. and Europe digging out, or still being covered in the titanium whites and cobalt blues of winter precipitation, I’ll relay a gentle reminder from American artist George Gardner Symons, noted for his beautiful winter scenes, that yes, snow can be beautiful, and yes, it eventually melts, and yes, Spring will indeed come back some day.

For more, including links to image resources, see my previous post on George Gardner Symons.

    We were blessed with a white Christmas this year. It was truly beautiful, and wonderful to share with family.

    A Symons would have done justice to the views we got to see…

    Symons paintings do justice to the views on the Dutch snowy countryside as well.
    We didn’t have to dig outselves out during our Christmas break. We would have loved to be stuck for a few extra days.
