Nature Inspired Art & Music Appreciation ~ February

At the start of this year, I decided to choose some nature study goals, including to add some art and music. Last month, I wrote about that experience and shared the painting and the music I focused on. I continued that practice in February, with a new chosen painting and music.

I chose another winter scene, this time by Alfred Sisley. It is called "la neige a Louvesciennes", in English: "Snow at Louvesciennes". 

This snow scene is so dreamy. I can imagine walking along that path, just like that person in the distance. I like how the snow is covering the trees and the fences. 

I searched for another piece of music that would feel like winter to me. I found a few and chose The Skater's Waltz by Emile Waldteufel. It's beautiful, and just like last month, I listened to it many times over the month of February. 

Two months have already gone by! I am enjoying this focus on art and music with our nature study. I am off to go select new pieces of art and music for March!
