Here's a less-than-ideal photo of my latest painting. I forgot to scan it before I whisked it off to the handcrafted arts fair at work this week. I donated this and the little angel painting below to the silent auction. I've never really put my work out there for sale before, so it was exciting to see people bid on my paintings. And also a little weird to see them happily scoop up their winnings and take them home. I'm so used to having my work here in my home for me to enjoy. The person who bought this painting is sending it to his elderly mother in Denver who loves cardinals. Which makes me incredibly happy and a little bit in awe that someone so far away will have my work in her home to enjoy.

Snowed in

These pictures are actually from last week. The snow was prettier then. Also, I am too lazy to go outside to take new pictures.

The sun is shining today, but it's really cold. And my street is an icy rutted mess. I only got in and out of my driveway yesterday because I have really really really nice neighbors who came over and pushed me when I got stuck. People who "love" snow must not have to drive to work in it for months at a time, that's all I can figure.

As for me and my cat, we shall stay inside and watch sports all day. And then maybe do some more painting. Because it was sooooo much fun getting back in my mixed media groove and painting this little angel last weekend!
