Snow World



All Photos: Lorie Klahn

Looks like another big snow year, and that's sayin' something. Last year we were up to the gills in the white stuff!

Every year I have to say the Farmer's Almanac is a good read. They called for the big snow, and what do you know?

Friends and family have been helping me by shoveling the path to the studio, and I have actually gotten some art work done. Woo Hoo! Today, though, we are literally swimming in windblown snow berms up to our armpits. I'd be happier if I could strap on my skis, but that will wait another week or so.

Happy New Year to everyone, if I don't post til then. Stay warm!

There can't be a better tiem or place to curl up with one of your lovely fat biographies.

A very Happy New Year to you and your family, Casey. May it be a year of good health, great art and economically, much better than any of us is anticating.

What are the temperaturs like Casey? Looks very pretty but very cold to me!

Casey Klahn said...

Take your pick of temps., Katherine.

Mostly cold, with one Chinook (warming period). I forgot to look today, but I did post hole through hip deep snow to get to the studio this AM !

Casey,
We have plenty of snow here in Maine but I can send more your way! Your blog always tugs at me to go back to doing some pastel...I miss it! Anyway, Happy New Year!

Hi Casey - this looks pretty although I wouldn't want to deal with those masses each day.
In the city we don't have those but it's awfully cold right now, 16°F during the night but with the wind it feels like 0!

Casey Klahn said...

I'm with you, Robyn. her's to a better year ahead.
Petra and Jean, you northerners are cold like me, too.

Casey, Your photos make snow look beautiful and romantic. I hope we get some this winter. Enjoy!
Have a wonderful new year!

Have I just invented a new word - anticating? I'm anticipating it will be in the next edition of the Oxford Dictionary - I'll get back to you when I have polished the definition ;)

Happy New Year Casey

Keep warm & happy in 2009. Try not to become a snow-man & hope you are mending well. Looking forward to seeing more of your art next year.

Outside it's about 10° centigrade, sunny & the birds are singing ...house doors & windows open for an airing... but the sea birds are in the field, so it's going get cold tonight. More logs on the fire & champagne to go!

Have a nice one :)

Loriann, Robyn, Adam and Corrine.

Thanks for writing, everyone. Loriann, a pastel plein airist whose art I just discovered and find to be the very definition of loose, well composed and colorist, has agreed to do an interview. Look forward to that.
Adam, sounds great in So. France. Enjoy!
Robyn, lay off the Christmas Grappa.
Corrine, you guys at Jafagirls and your family stay warm in Ohio. Happy New Year!

Stay warm and not entirely buried by snow, and a happy healthy new year to you and yours.

Beautiful snow Casey, and a relief to hear that you've got help shoveling it all. Best wishes for a very happy, healthy New Year!
