Yippee! I just love Portlandia! With one inch of snow on the ground and the possibility of more snow on the way, we close schools. I know all you easterners and mid-westerners must get a good laugh over that, but it's a good thing - it really is! We don't know how to drive in it, and it's the only time our kids ever get to experience the white stuff. So even when it all melts by 12:00 noon, it's good that we've gotten the day off to celebrate the rare wonder of snow.
Some of us celebrate by doing art.
S0 much fun! I played in my journal, making snowflake potato stamps and working on a couple of other paintings. I know I haven't posted much work lately, but I do have a bunch of works in progress and today I borrowed Willow's camera to get some photos. Over the next few days I'll post some of those. For now, here's a mixed media piece - I painted a portrait of one of my dolls! Seems kind of silly, but painting the faces on the dolls has inspired me to paint, period. There's a lot of texture in this piece. I just can't tear myself away from all that tactile fun.
Will we get another snow day tomorrow? Or maybe an ice day? I hope so, because for me every snow day becomes a warm and cozy, productive, studio day!
