Best Wishes
to Everyone for a

Peaceful, Healthy,
Employed New Year!

My muse has been on a Holiday break. We all get artistic dry spells and I intend to go back through some books as well as my own Art Lessons and Monthly Greetings for ideas on breaking the creative logjam.
In the meantime,
I want to share my recent snowbound-at-home-for-a-week photos. Even though I wasn't painting in the studio, I enjoyed being there, watching the snow fall with Arteesta, my newish young studio cat. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a little personal retreat and I'm grateful.

My heater.
It's not fast,
but it's warm!


It's freezing outside
but Arteesta is toasty.

Arteesta, my studio cat. Notice on TV that PCC
is closed. Yay, got the
day off!
