Christmas Countdown Day 20 — Polar Baby
Are We Having Fun Yet?
Day 5 Winter Fun
Whimsical Animals in Winter
I had fun creating these two little paintings. Though I’m noticing now that my reindeer and the lamb might be in the same family. The facial resemblance is quite striking! Oh well, it’s supposed to be naive, folk art. These are not photographs!
I’ve also added both of these, with a few others to my Etsy shop today. Remember I’m offering 20% off through Monday. This is a one time opportunity and won’t be repeated. All of my paintings are one of a kind, so shop soon so you don’t miss out.
Have a great weekend!
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 must admit, I don’t look forward to cold, snow and ice. Winter in Chicago is NOT my favorite season. And even though it’s over a month away on the calendar, it has been rearing it’s ugly head this week. Burrrr! This little painting helps me grin and bear it. I can fool myself into thinking winter is cute and fun!
Snowman with Red Birds
Frosty and Friends
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?
Here’s my latest snowman painting. And coming from me, of course he is sporting a patchwork coat!
What do you like about winter?
After almost a year without any significant snowfall in the Chicago area, today we were treated to some beautiful snowfall. This is the view out my front door. As much as I hate shoveling snow, I couldn’t help but marvel at the beautiful scene out of every window. I stayed warm and toasty inside and gazed out at my “winter wonderland”.
