Will Cotton Winter Wonderland

After the record-breaking snowfall in NYC last week and with more predicted tomorrow, I've been pleasantly reminded of one of my favorite artists-Will Cotton. His fantastical paintings depict candyscapes in white snowy settings. Just when I think I've found my favorite one, another one comes along that I love even more! You may recognize his work in Katy Perry's "California Gurls" video. Here are just a few of his amazing paintings. If you're interested in seeing more of his work, check out his website.
