Woke up this morning to at least 2 more inches of snow. Above is a closeup of Merlin in the snow this morning. Kevin made paths through the snow for the dogs earlier, but they had nearly vanished.

As you can see above, I did some ACEO sized paintings today. The image above is the midway point for them once they were all blocked in. Here's the same ones finished: Then I quickly did one more because my son told me I some more time before he was ready to sit down and … Continue reading Painting and movie
