Oh beautiful snowy landscape. It looked like a Christmas card this morning. It didn’t last though, as the sun rose it started melting.
It was a challenge picking today’s photo. I wanted one that represents our first snowfall of the season and was torn between the one above and this gorgeous blue jay
Yesterday, I received a bunch of Christmas cards from a charity looking for a donation. As a gift, they included several cards, notepads and stickers. The cards are beautiful. One has two Cardinals and another has a chickadee. As soon as I saw the birds I said “I’m going to paint those”. Now, I say that every year and have been for years and I’ve never actually got around to painting them. But this year is different because I’m painting every day and, at many points throughout the year, I have looked for inspiration because I ran out of ideas! So tonight, I painted the cardinal. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.
