End of November, billions of snowflakes are dancing over the city. It won't last this time, but what a wonderful and magical foretaste for the first real snowstorm to come.
On our last visit to my parents house, I remembered of some old ornaments from the 50's wich were stored in the basement. I had this idea of a small series since a while. I was curious to bring back some childhood memories with a sober approach of the objects. I project to make 3 or 4 painting with these. You may have a look on the progressing series here: Painted Snapshots

I wish you a great week,
let it snow, let it snow...
