Tuesday, December 8


Oh, how I love December! Not only does it contain two very important birthdays, (Jesus's ...and mine, haha just kidding) but it's when you really need to start bundling up.

The Snow Maiden, c. 1890s
Art Museum of Ryasan, Ryasan, Russia

Like this lady. This dainty painting by the Russian artist Mikhail Aleksandrovich Vrubel was a sketch made for the opera by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. I don't know what I like more- the over-sized snowflakes that have stuck to her hair, or the little squirrel to her left. The only thing about this painting that's off to me is the unsettling gaze of the woman at something next to the viewer. However, even that is pretty in a haunting sort of way.
