Alicia paints a house in sub-zero temps!

     I was commissioned to paint this house-portrait in Dec. '08, for a family moving to California. Although the original photo had no snow on the ground, I added plenty of it to give the house a cozy, "winter-in-Minnesota" feel. 
     Will the family look back upon their Minnesota-winters with a chuckle or with a sense of longing for hours of playing in snow forts and sledding down icy slopes? Winters are long in Minnesota but a long day of playing in the snow is always rewarded with a delicious cup of hot chocolate.
     If you would like to commemorate your abode, please email me at: www.alicia@aliciaschwab-online.com.

Nice looking house if I do say so myself! Do you have any tea per chance?

Yes! I finally found your blog!

I love the colors and the light on the snow. Houses are so hard to paint, but you make it look easy!
