A New Bird for Winnie

….a little under the weather so my husband missed a few drawing days

Today’s drawing would have been good for Weird Bird Wednesday but it was posted today. Winnie’s only comment today was that Sundays should be Sunday Rabbits. Kevin’s working on that.

Snow Angel

…I’m glad that someone is getting joy out of this crazy weather

Actually seeing this angel brought me joy and it brought back memories of me as a kid doing the same thing in freshly fallen snow. I saw the children who had probably made the angels with their parents when I was walking through the park to catch more ice designs with my camera. It was a bit treacherous because beneath the snow was slick ice. I had visions of falling and sliding down the banks into Lake Ontario. I saw another photographer out looking for interesting shots and he was walking very gingerly over the ice as well.

We had lots of rain last night. Could this be the end of winter? I doubt it but we’re getting closer and closer to spring.IMG-1022

What a Difference a Little Colour and Collage Can Make

….took another page of one-line drawings and added some interest

I love going back through my sketchbook and finding pages that I feel need more work. This is a page of one-line houses that I drew last year.fullsizeoutput-6c4c

I purchased some new Tombow paint pens and pulled out my Artist Loft markers and added some colour to this piece. Then I added some collage for more interest. I’m much happier with this updated piece of art.fullsizeoutput-768e

Is There an End to This?

….more snow in the forecast for tomorrow

I can’t believe that I was lamenting about having no snow back in early January. Now it just keeps coming. The upside is that when the sun shines you can tell that spring can’t be too far off. The snow starts to melt but overnight it freezes and the next day it’s like an ice rink on the roads and sidewalks.

Yesterday, during one of those sunny periods I got outside and started to chip away at the ice on the driveway. I think I was outside for two hours. I also walked down to the park and took some photos of the lovely ice sculptures made by Mother Nature.IMG-1015
