I am in the middle. The Baby Girl. I miss my sister on the left. She lives in CO. The sister on the right lives 25 minutes from me and we are both artists. This was taken several years ago in IN at the birthday party. I was about to leave for Las Vagas.

Drawing, Watercolor and W/N White

I am trying all kinds of new things. Some, I am not doing well but I really like this one. After drawing with a #2 pencil, I painted with watercolors using BS, Magenta, Azo Yellow and Paynes grey. When it was dry, I splattered wikth W/N Bleedproof white and a toothbrush. The idea for the pole light came from "Capture the Charm of Your Hometown" by Frank Loudin. This was fun!

Oh, I Forgot.  I used Payne's Grey and Susie's Brush for the swirling snow.    I also used a circle template and a Mr Clean Magic Eraser for the moon.

Time to update

Our three sided Christmas Tree
This way I can push it up against the wall
and make room to walk by it.

Winter wonderland has arrived.  Our home
is pretty in any season but especially now.

Our Lane
Jim made the bench for the skaters
and I have been collecting sleds.

The pond covered with snow.  This is the
view from our front porch.
