It is all relative


Usually, on Thursday night, I meet with group of local artists to draw from a live model. So that is where I should be right now. However, when checking my email this morning, there was a message saying "Life Drawing is Cancelled"! Why, you ask? Because it is supposed to get cold, and there is a chance of snow down to 4,000 feet!!! That's why. Now, Coming from Colorado, this makes me smile. It's been below zero in Colorado, according to my friends. I think I am going to fit in just fine, here with the wimpy people. How nice.

I can't write much, because Pono has a toy between his two front paws, and he is looking at me with those sad puppy eyes, that face that he perfected from day 1, probably. He then, for dramatic emphasis, whines occasionally. I can't resist it. I must throw toy for dog. Must....throw....toy.

Here is one more painting for you to look at while I play with my fuzzy fuzz ball. It is an oil on canvas, 18 x 24", and the colors, as always, are so much better in person. I think it's a flower, but I'm not sure yet.

Hi Karine!
I love this painting too. You are amazing!
It was warm today! almost 60 degrees but so windy that windows blew in at the chipotle restaurant down the street. the place was full of customers if you can believe it.
the wind is gone now, so hopefully it will be just warm tomorrow and then more snow on monday. :)

I can just picture the look - Pono got your number probably from the first he made that sad face. Those additional whines are something else!

Funny how people get acclimatised to where they live. Things get cancelled here when it hits -35c and there's a wind chill. I'd rather that things were cancelled at 0c!!

I like the flower - the shape and colour are wonderful!
