Christmas Snow – Colorado

Derek Alvarez, Christmas Snow – Colorado, Hand Painted on the iPad using Procreate, 2017

A few years ago we were living in Colorado around Christmas time and we looked outside to see these big snowflakes coming down. The contrast of the white snowflakes with the black night was quite beautiful and if you really look at this painting you will see that there is a big “Christmas tree” in the background. This memory popped up in my Facebook notifications and I just had to try and express it through painted form. By design, it is hard to tell where the snow ends and the stars begin… and in this way I am trying to capture the magic of Christmas.
