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.

  3. I know a lot of people don't love the snow but not me, I love it so tfs the pics. I also feed the squirrels ( another thing that a lot don't like ) Best wishes for 2018!

  4. I really like how you did the tree, its branches are lovely!! Beautiful! Lovely photos as well, that squirrel looks very healthy!! Best wishes for a wonderful new year!

  5. Your yellow cottage is bright and sunny. For some reason I didn't think you lived in snow country. The photos of the fountain are wonderful. Wishing for you the best 2018.

  6. I fell in love with little cottage illustrations a couple of years ago, and saved them on my computer, thinking of making quilt squares, but they would also be great inspiration for some of my paintings. Loved this one of yours!

  7. Darling art creation ~ looks like snow and cold are there too ~ what a Winter!

    Happy New Year ^_^

  8. I love your sweet cottage and your photos a quite nice! Happy New year and stay warm! :)

  9. your little cottage seems cosy. And love the squirrels. I see some now and then but they are in the trees running fast. Not the slightest chance to get shots.

    Happy New Year!

  10. What a sweet and delicate scene, I love the tree in your piece. I hadn't seen a fountain frozen over before, it's very pretty. Congrats on your new kitty!

  11. Such a beautiful house and tree scene. It looks like delicate embroidery to me. Your winter pictures are great! Happy New Year!

  12. I'm not sure if my comment I made a second ago was registered ... just to let you know how much I like the beautiful house and tree scene and the great winter pictures!
