Update your wall with these five works of art that will last all winter long!
1. Winter Forest by Larisa Siverina
Artist Larisa Siverina has been working in paint, photography and mixed media collage for over 13 years! This abstracted peek through the wintery forest trees is the perfect way to bring a little texture to your living room. This scene will help set the winter mood in a subtle way that easily matches almost any color scheme or decorative theme.

2. Winter Morning, Big Ben, Elizabeth Tower, London by Richard Harpum
English artist Richard Harpum’s quaint scenes of London are the perfect for a winter wonderland theme. Harpum’s realistic precision makes you feel as if you are stepping onto the snowy street. What says winter more than sloshy snow as a double decker rushes by or the wispy white winter clouds animating the sky above Big Ben?

3. Full Moon by Alisa Onipchenko-Cherniakovska
Ukrainian artist Alisa Onipchenko-Cherniakovska’s richly layered oil paintings always tell a story. This dark and moody scene could last you year-round in a trendy setting. For winter, it’s the perfect piece to set the tone as we go into the cold and dark hibernation period of the year.

4. Cascade Brook Trail by Ted Fryberger
Contemporary artist Ted Fryberger is known for his dynamic wilderness and underwater photographs. If your window doesn’t overlook a cozy winterscape, this photograph would be a perfect substitute. Hang it on your kitchen wall and stare out at the cold and rugged snow-covered wilderness while you sip on hot cocoa.

5. Murder in New York 2 by Tony A Blue
American artist Tony A. Blue works with a variety of mediums to achieve his conceptual images.
Upon first glance, this piece looks fun, but underneath lies a sinister back story. Almost at once, what looked like whimsically swaying buildings become the chaos of the aftermath of September 11th, 2001. It is inspired by the 2001 attack on New York City and shows the collapsed random industrial building pieces scattered around the city.
Perhaps you’d like a reminder that just like the growth of Spring follows the dead of Winter, out of death and destruction good things can grow. If you are like me and you enjoy a painting that is initially aesthetically pleasing but holds a deeper conceptual meaning, than this work is for you!
