Sometimes when I work on a piece that has a lot of meaning to me it is hard to talk about, at least at first. I have just finished such a piece and I want to share it but not reveal too much about it, so here are some images. You will see that I have stepped back from an embroidered face and instead used watercolor and ink. Enjoy the images.
Two days ago the weather forcast called for snow in the western part of the state and I was so happy to see my area was not in the colored boxes on the weather map. Unfortunately the front moved and today we are getting our first snowfall, and it is a doozy. No little skimpy snow to get used to the next season, no sireee. We have the stuff just pouring from the sky.
One thing about snow, it seems to turn the air calm and quiet and a of peace settles in. It makes you want to snuggle in your fluffiest sweater, make some hot chocolate and settle in with a good book. Here are some images taken from my driveway.
