Because of its personal nature, however, several artists have created truly beautiful works of art using this subject for inspiration. Artists such as Monet, Sorenson, and Alphonse Mucha have created delicate works that portray the mysterious beauty and enchantment of the winter season. Because of the reflective qualities required for the depiction of believable snow, this form of art requires skill and patience in order to create the sense of depth typical of this art form. Animals and people are frequently included in this category of art, either as a main or secondary subject to the work. These snow paintings can serve as an example of human joy and fortitude, with the snowy imagery as an effective backdrop to the other subjects. Blizzard and snow art that are simply landscapes in nature are also highly effective as emotive pieces. These pictures can depict homes, foliage, and other stationary objects. These are very accurately considered 'still' life paintings because they depict the still perfection of deep winter. These depictions can have a variety of themes involved in their creation, but the majority of them provide a place of quiet contemplation for the viewer's mind while still being aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
