Snow. You either love it or hate it. Are you able to picture a fresh snowfall in your mind? Or is it falling outside your window as you read this article? Either way, there is nothing quite like the feeling of existing at the same time as a fresh snowfall. It stops us in our busy lives, sometimes shutting down whole cities around the world. Bringing “normal” lives to a standstill, causing us to either enjoy the beauty of nature or shiver in the freezing temperatures. Let’s look at some snowy landscape paintings that will make you fall in love with the weather of winter.

Below are several snowy landscape paintings to help better understand the rejuvenating feeling of a winter’s snowfall if you happen to live somewhere in the world that does not see much, if any, snow during the colder months. Or, if you like to look at snow but do not enjoy the cold weather it comes with, enjoy these paintings.

The 19th-century Impressionist painter created over 100 paintings on the theme of snow. Below are two of those well-known oil paintings.
There is something special about Munch’s depiction of a snow-covered street. The stark contrast of the snow-covered street to the browns, blacks, and reds of the surrounding trees, sky, and figures, makes for a great “snow” themed painting.
This painting is interesting because, even though it is more abstract, the colors and shapes help us identify it as a snowy landscape painting. You can read more about his paintings here!
The oil painting depicts melting snow. But it could also very well be a fresh light dusting of the winter weather.
Lorelai describes perfectly the feeling when you love snow in several scenes from the beloved show.
