EDM 262 Shower

With the flooding rains this week I could not help but correlate to this week's challenge. I love a nice hot shower but what's happening outside in the freezing cold is the pits!
February is Not my favorite month.

Make it Right

Seems like I need a lot of this lately!!

Signs of renewal

Just when I needed a sign, there they were, two beautiful geese flying right over my head, heading north - A renewal is on the way.

The Olympics have brought Vancouver BC into the lime light and it is a beautiful, intriguing land. I have a nephew in college at UBC and I can understand a great deal of the appeal .
Apparently the area does have a lot of rain and fog, which is why the Whistler Mountain was originally names London Mountain.

EDM 261 Olympics

This was a fun challenge to work on as I watched competition. The medal is rather difficult to portray . I want to try this again with a looser approach (my life long effort to loosen up- humm this relates to all of my life lately)

EDM 260 Suitcase

I have long admired this luggage in the Orvis catalog - something earthy about the leather and waxed canvas. Seemed to fit the challenge.

Finally Home

Health wise it has been a difficult month for this family - at least one issue is finally over.

Comfort- Chinese style

Quick, convenient, aromatic, warm and fun to eat - Comfort in a cute container.


No white out at the moment, but there is a fresh clean coat of snow. Wonder if we will get the full 12" before it's all over?

EDM 259 Pet's view

Lets face it, my dogs only have eyes for treats and of late these Beggin Strips Rule their lives. They do look good!

Colin Turns 3

Doesn't seem possible - and I think you can guess the theme!
Boy that face needs work!


The lab was full of "waiters" so lots of sketching potential - and the wait was Long. They just don't seem to move very fast in the mornings. This came out better than I thought when I began, of course I was too intimidated to use pen but there was very little erasing ;-)

A Winter's Walk

Even a winter's walk can reveal surprises. There was little snow at that date and the small marsh was unfrozen - can't imagine there was much to eat though. I started this sketch immediately, but forgot to finish. I certainly need practice with on-site looseness!

EDM 258 Closet

A bit late on this challenge, and mostly because I did not want to stare into any of my closets for any length of time. Winter is a good time to clean out clutter, but I just have not found the energy ! Consequently - this was done VERY fast :-) I like loose splashy watercolors, and this was a time step forward for me to work quickly.
