Hoar Frost - Misty Morning greetings by Vivien Blackburn

Hoar Frost - Misty morning by Vivien Blackburn acrylic on paper 

I am the happy winner of a beautiful British winter landscape by Vivien Blackburn. She took the time and effort to do this piece at low temperatures. I never tempted to paint hoar frost. It is so beautiful to see the landscape powdered in white. I always considered it an "impossible" subject for me. This is a great start that fits so well for me because we had similar beautiful landscape vistas over here in Germany just a couple of days before this. Thank you Vivien!

This is gorgeous. You've set yourself a high standard to maintain Vivien - we'll all want ones as nice as this one! :)

Thank you for showing off vivien/s postcard in such a beautiful, clear way, MArtin!
And yes, isn't she an amazing artist...I remember when my flying pictures book arrived every time(I received from Vivien)...it was magic every time! I almost "dissected" her work with a magnifying glass to see what mediums she combined and how she did it! This is just once again beautiful...not really a postcard I would say, but a piece that should be showed off on a wall!

Beautifully done. I need to see it closer and hold it in my hand. Send it to me, Martin, so I can see it better.

:>) Thank you everyone - how lovely to come home to all those nice comments

I've promised my students that I'll take the cards in to show them as they arrive - I can't wait for Martin's to get here. And next month it being a mystery sender will be fun.

Beautiful! Vivien, you captured that frosty look so well. I love the details in this.

Wow!! Speechless with delight to see this little masterpiece. Certainly not just a postcard. And yes, we will all be winners when the post arrives from Vivian.
