Winter landscape is painted by winter, and this is a time of waiting, a period when a person is trying to find something special, dear and warm in the line of ingloriously drifting minutes. Severe frosts, severe blizzards, ice-bound winter forest — a description of nature can take more than one page of text. But what is a person doing in this big picture? He’s just waiting. Waiting for the holidays, snow, spring, words and something special. After all, only in winter there are so many reasons for long-awaited meetings and fun. But it is not only the person who is waiting. To fall to the ground, a snowflake must fly for an hour at a speed of 5 centimeters per second. Looking at the snow-covered nature, we do not even suspect how long it took for Her Majesty Winter to weave a fluffy blanket from tiny snowflakes and create a beautiful winter landscape. Describing nature at this time of year is a real pleasure. Artists, writers, poets — none of them could ignore winter in their work. After all, no, there has not been and will not be a person who would remain indifferent, contemplating the snowy expanses. More than half of the world’s population has never seen real snow — the main attribute of winter. Handmade oil painting.

Perhaps the hardest thing for these people to imagine is how literally overnight the whole world around them becomes enchantingly snow-white. The earth sparkles in the sun, as if covered with diamonds. Snow reflects 90% of the sun’s rays, sending them back into space, thereby preventing the soil from warming up. In one cubic meter of snow there are 350 million snowflakes, and in one short blizzard, several billion of them fall. And even among such a number, it is impossible to find two identical.
