Whenever I find some free time I try to do exercises from one of these great books One Watercolor A Day or One Drawing A Day by the talented Veronica Lawlor and the members of Studio 1482. This one was Exercise #7—Food Studies in One Watercolor A Day.

It is so cold when I take Sophie to the beach every morning—today it was 8° but of course with the wind it feels far colder. Despite the cold, I am always struck by how beautiful it is so I usually manage to get a photo before scooping her up and running back to the house.
It as though winter will never end. Snow is still piled high and covering the ground creating a bleak landscape. It is hard to imagine in 4 months it will be green and lush. We are back into what they are calling a "Polar Vortex". It just sounds cold and is with temperatures in the single digits because of the windchill factor. I'm so over this winter.
I have been painting at the gallery huddled in front of the easel and the space heater. My lastest two paintings are above;
"Ikan Koi Bali" 24"x24" oil on canvas
"My Jeans" Oil and acrylic on my Gap Boyfriend jeans
