Our clothes, decorations, and even attitude may change with the seasons, but there are a few mainstays we appreciate for their year-round appeal. A good piece of art, for example, isn’t something you take up and and down with passing months. It’s a staple in any home, one I would argue, that gets even better over time. So, how is it possible to hang a piece of art with subject matter so closely linked to a specific season? Well, anything is possible of course. But to paint a better picture, we’ll take a look at 6 winterscapes with perennial lasting power.
Winter by Heidi Lanino Bilezikian. The eclectic color palette and less realistic subject matter lends itself to perfectly to all seasons. It certainly has an air of winter without going overboard on snowflakes and evergreens.
Winter by Rinalds Vanadzins. Despite icicles dripping from telephone wires, the street art aesthetic, active lines, and focus on the two tunnels ahead gives this piece a sense of adventure that stands out more than the season itself.
Ice Queens by Db Waterman. Ironically, this piece isn’t REALLY about winter, but rather uses the frosty season as a means of communicating cold-spirited people. Here, winter guides the work’s messaging and beautifully minimal aesthetic, rather than the time of year.
Early Winter by Chris Brandley. The contrast of the red tree here is like an eternal sign of life against the pastel snow. If you look at a distance, you almost can’t discern if it’s autumn, winter, or spring thanks to the foliage.
Ready for the Wintertime by Stacey Lovejoy. This piece is in fact very winter-y, given the snowmen, winter garb, and snow-capped mountains. Yet, the whimsical layout, thick lines, and saturated colors combine to make a bold statement that is more concerned with design and a quirky style, than the winter season itself.
Winter Lake by Andrew Sechin. This winter snowfall takes on a modern, minimal aesthetic, that in any other season is just as clean and chic.
