Yellow Cottage . . .Tree and Birds

 Mostly pastels and pencils . . .some ink.  Thank you for visiting, I haven't been able to see everyone's pictures. Thank you Kristin and Eva for having Paint Party Friday every week. It certainly keeps me on my toes.

 The Fountain with cold weather. . .iced over, but 
still was running. . . . .and. . . .

 . . .finally today some of the ice melted.
We are expecting single digit weather so
they may take the fountain down tomorrow.
 But even before the cold, we had 2" of snow.

 My kids made a snow man. . .a week later, it's still there.
Minx is watching me feed the squirrels.
