It’s past midnight (Happy New Year!) so I can post my first painting of 2014. We’ve had a very snowy New Years Eve so it seemed only appropriate that I should start off the year with another snowman. I will be adding this to Leslie Saeta’s blog as part of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. Day One is done! See it in my Etsy Shop.
It’s supposed to snow a bit here tomorrow. It’s certainly cold enough! We had a 40 degree temperature drop in just the last few days. We can’t stop winter from coming, so might as well enjoy it. Plus, my outdoor Christmas lights look that much better with a few inches of snow.

Woodland creatures seem to be all the rage now. I did see a fox in our neighborhood over the summer. It was a treat. Who knows where he came from. This fox looks a little cold. At least he has a few friends to keep him company.
I came home from Las Vegas and was greeted by 30 degree weather and snow on the ground ! I wasn’t expecting that. if it was December, I might have welcomed it. I better get used to it. Time to break out the gloves and scarves. This little painting illustrates how nice it is to be home–no matter the weather.
Winter is coming! Yikes! We had our first real freeze last night and today’s high will only be in the 40’s. After over 35 years in the Chicago area, (I’m originally from hot, dry Las Vegas), you would think I would be used to the cold, but I’m not. I just grin and bear it. The good news is that on cold days I can flip a switch and have an instant gas fire in my sitting/sewing room. I LOVE my fireplace. I’m even guilty of opening a window on cooler days so the room will get cold enough to turn my fireplace on. Is that crazy or what?
What do you like about winter?
