John's Snowy Cabin

My wonderful big brother John, was in charge of renovation of this cabin for his Exchange Club. They did a wonderful job. I painted this for him just because I love him so much and he loves me too.

Baking Cookies and Painting(pictures not the cookies)

I have been painting but they are for gifts so I can't show them until after Christmas. I have been baking cookies everyday. I tried to reorganize my studio yesterday but I was in there for 5 minutes and sat down to paint the latest idea. I couldn't stop myself. All those colors and all that paper call my name. I have been saying my whole life, "I wish I could paint that". Now I can paint whatever I want. Sometimes it's really bad but it's a learning experience and just paper. I'm going to a one day workshop in January in Ohio with my sister. I am so excited! I'm sure I will learn new techniques.

Painting withdrawal

I have been in Ohio for a week to visit with my sister. We played so hard that we didn't stop to paint. Now I have laundry to do and groceries to buy so it might not happen today. Tomorrow for sure. I will get my 10 minutes of drawing into my Moleskin.
