22 Feb “Snowball”
Snowball 8 x 6″ oil/canvas panel
When I was a kid my Mom used to make all our mittens. Considering there were four of us, I can only imagine how challenging this task was. But each Christmas there they were – a new pair in each of our stockings. I remember studying the textures in the knitted wool, thinking they were so beautiful. Today you can pick up a pair at any Walmart for $1.98, but they’ll never replace the bulky warmth of a handmade pair.
