A Winter Visit

One of my favorite books that I received as a child was "The Snow Queen and Other Tales". I found myself inspired to make a wintry folktale  style piece not unlike the paintings and illustrations in my book.   Imagery from itkupilli.  For the Art Journal Journey challenge "Winter Wonderland".

Happy New Year 2016!
