In this most frigid time of the year when so many people are craving spring, it can be so easy to look at the snow keeping them in and see only the drab, the colorless blanket of cold around them. But look closer! There is so much color, so much beauty. It sparkles, it reflects the beauty around it. It invites you to be cozy inside or to adventure outside. Embrace that beauty! This painting which brings the colors of snow so alive is by Daniel F. Gerhartz.
