Very excited, tomorrow we leave for Arizona to visit my brother and his wife. That is, IF we beat yet another winter storm expected tomorrow with another possible foot of snow on top of the two feet still on the ground. But hey, it is January in New England and that is expected. Looking forward to 70 degree temps and hikes in the mountains of the southwest. My journal needs that vacation too!! More to come.

Another "from memory" sketch- this time my local Starbucks - their new (ahem) larger size boggles the mind, apparently it is only for cold drinks, but still - how much is enough?? We Americans simply Have to Supersize!! This Stonehedge journal does take the wc paint well and holds the vibrancy well, not that this sketch used much color .
The ground is frozen and 2 feet of snow - so why are there hundreds of Canadian geese in the nearby farm field? It's a long time till spring! I am testing a new journal sketchbook so I sat and tried to sketch the scene from memory - not very accurate but the journal is fun to work on (not sure I can get used to the spiral binding but it is nice to not fight for flatness ;-) Stonehenge journal

Lately I have been so blah, uninspired and just could not generate any interest in drawing. Thanks to Kate's new blog I Just started with the mundane - husband's shovels standing at the ready for the upcoming blizzard, and then I let it flow as the snow piled up. Quite a fun spread by it's end (and yet it is still snowing - soooooo beautiful and I will paint some winter next!)
