This article is meant to bring hope to our readers who live in the Midwest and the Plains states. (That would included me.) Businesses and stores and schools are closed. Monster snowfall, ice accumulation, and stranded travelers are making headlines. And now a wave of treacherous Arctic cold is on the way. And to make it even worse, that dang groundhog saw his shadow, so the end is a good six weeks off!
If you’re at all like me, about this time of year you find yourself in need of a little HOPE. I spent the better part of yesterday morning chipping 1½” of ice off the Canvas on Demand Crazy van. It looked like a massive ice cube when I began, and it looked like a massive ice cube with a windshield when I was finished.
So if you still can’t get the front door open or if you live where the wind chill is expected to reach minus 25, take heart! Today’s featured canvases are posted to offer hope to the frozen. Hope that the warm sun will shine again. Hope that the flowers will burst from out of the soil in the weeks ahead. Hope that the day is soon coming when the kids will head outdoors to play once more.
So set the snow shovel aside, fix yourself a hot cup of cocoa, curl up on the cozy sofa, and take a long hard look at the canvases below. March 20th, the first day of spring, is not really so far off. Hang on! Mom
