Let it Snow

No painting this weekend. but lots of snow, paper and real. Making snowflakes is one of my favorite things to do. Hot tea with honey,a fire in the fireplace,a football game on the tv and a stack of white paper and good sharp scissors is my idea of a nice winter sunday afternoon :-)

This is a portrait of a lucky cat. He was frozen - seriously. He was frozen and his current owner saw him,thought he was a stuffed animal but then noticed him move slightly so he took him home and literally thawed him out and saved his life! Now, a little rough around the edges,getting on in years but otherwise fine. We thought he deserved a portrait....oh and his name is "Frostbite"

Two Turtle Doves

I love vintage cards and have a bunch. Recently my mother gave me a few more and one little cutie inspired this painting. I had big dreams of doing a different painting of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Two Turtle Doves might be as far as I get. I pretty much crossed this project right off my holiday 2do list...what was I thinking???

Its crazy this time of year isn't it?
 Even if you say it wont be...It Is.
 Lights, gifts, wrapping paper, gift tags, parties, cards, baking, candles, endless shopping lists, crowds etc etc....
can you imagine how 'the big guy' feels?

 Santa must take a serious beach vacation in January.  He deserves the down time.

I paint this alot - people -actually girls mostly- staring out at the ocean. While painting, I was thinking about that and decided that I'm drawn to this kind of image because 1. its familiar, 2. when creating you tap into your 'inner child' - well at least you should, in my opinion- so in a way I am painting myself. Does that make any sense? dont know. but the artist I am now is in many ways the child I was. and 3. just dang fun to paint :-)

So I guess take a second to reflect on yourself as a kid, what did you like to do? Do you do any of those things anymore? You should...take yourself on a playdate.
