I promise not to say this often this year but… January is almost over! When did that happen???

Tonight was the night to paint something for the second little frame I purchased over the Christmas holidays. Isn’t it the sweetest frame!

I had no idea what to paint and then this came to me. Love when that happens!

Today’s photo is of the frost faeries…frost patterns on my kitchen window. Almost every day they are there and the pattern changes daily. So beautiful, especially today as the sun was rising, lighting them up. This image has not been edited and no filters applied. The change in colour is from the sun. Very cool!

A mild overcast day. Was so great to see the birds and turkeys. I miss the activity in the backyard when I’m at the office.

Like this guy popping by for a visit

Today’s painting, I used a grey I purchased over the holidays but haven’t had a chance to try it out, until now 😉

The frost faeries made an appearance this morning and are today’s photo.

It’s strange getting up at 5:30 am and seeing a strip of daylight beginning. Won’t be long and the sun will be up early and go down late (SUMMER!) The drive into work was bright and sunny, even though it was friggin cold!

I was thrilled to see another frost faerie on the window this morning. Only one. Usually there’s a strip across the bottom of the window. I took some pictures, put the camera away and continued getting ready for my day.

Then the sun came up and shone on the window. Well…the frost faerie took on some pretty sweet colours/highlights and I just had to get my camera to capture it. Today’s photo of the day:
