Bit of a frustrating day yesterday. Painting didn’t come easily and I couldn’t find a piece of Art that went with the verse in Noise of Snow that captures children playing in the snow. There are many lovely paintings, so many used on Christmas cards, illustrations in books, but the ones I found were all in copyright and right now, I want to avoid trying to get Artists’ permissions. And then, at the end of the day, Hashimoto Chikanobu’s ‘A Group of Children Playing Under the Plum Blossoms in Snow.’ Painted in 1887. Tick.
