Snowmen Inspirations - Here - There - Everywhere

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art.  Last week I promised to  share an old  posts about painting a Snowman door greeter.  Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, to look for some Snowmen inspirations to get you inspired to paint your own this year.














My love for Snowmen began as a child when my Grandmother gave me a little paper mache box with a Snowman on top and I loved it so much that she gave me one each year. This year I hung one of my Snowmen on the front door wreath to give it a new look;.

                                The watering cans have Snowmen painted on them!







                                           Let's go inside to see more Snowmen.









I brought the outdoor potted pine tree inside and surrounded it with Snowmen in front of a window. 






I hope that you found a little inspiration to paint your own Snowman.  You can find a tutorial for the Snowman below on my blog post dated 11-29-10 or 11-30-08.





Thank you for stopping by.  I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those who follow my blog.  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special,

Have a lovely week.  Blessings, Erin

Love your snowmen - I have a fondness for melt-your-heart snowmen too. Mine started w/Mom's lighted snowman under the tree ....

I love your art in the wreath too. Looks great.

Always love your teapots!

I'm switching from email to RSS feed for your blog - trying to clean out readers and email and such.

Thanks! Hugs to Bentley and you!

Your snowmen are adorable, Erin. I also love those which are displayed on your stairs.
All looks so festive and cheerful.
Seeing your snowmen gave me the idea to create one on my own. I made two snowmen painted on small canvas.
They will decorate the Christmas tree that I am going to have for my 2 years old grandson.
Thank you to share your creative ideas and your beautiful home.

PS I will show my painted snowmen on my blog.
