It actually snowed here 2 days ago! Enough for the ground to be white, but today everything has melted away. It was really nice to be able to at least once be outdoors walking with a nice snow-crunch under my feet! Picture from our window:
And the studio update: I finally have gotten to painting in a bird on one of my backgrounds. First layer of color is done, next update of this will be when it is finished. I have a lot of other backgrounds almost finished, but some of them I will have to redesign as my initial sketch for them worked well as a collage in my art-journal, but not so much as a painting. So, I have to continue experimenting until the 'magic' happens... :-)
Happy New 2013 everyone!!
