The arrival of the first snowfall of the season is greeted with mixed emotion by North Americans. Of course, kids and those who are kids at heart, can't wait to dig in and make snowballs and break out the toboggans, saucers and various other required equipment for winter downhill travel. Such excitement for the arrival of a new season is not felt by everyone; although, a comment on the event is always readily offered. First Snowfall is a contemporary watercolor painting by landscape artist Hanne Lore Koehler of a late fall scene as the first snowfall of the season catches us by surprise. The vibrant color of autumn trees against the stark winter white creates the drama, the romance and the mixed emotions of childhood memories of winter fun hit you like a wet snowball. Life is wonderful!
