Sleigh Ride
Miller is often inspired by her surroundings and paints scenes of the Adirondacks, the mountains in upstate New York, where she lives. They are usually cozy looking winter scenes that are imbued with a magical whimsy. Often they have a Christmas feeling to them that can help set the holiday mood in a room. The landscapes with falling snow will give you the chills with their wonderful details. While the sleigh drawn by horses will take you back to a time when Christmas was simpler to enjoy.

Whiteface from Route 87
You can tell by her choice of subjects, that she has a deep love of her environment. Landscapes like Whiteface from Route 87 give an almost surreal vantage point of the beautiful mountains she lives near. While her inclusion of animals, like He Stands Guard add a feeling of importance to the backdrop. In both Bringing Home the Tree and Sleigh Ride, you feel as though you are sharing the Christmas merriment.
