Our Ellie

I painted this on a paneled board using pastels and paint.

Lemons in Blue Bowl

I worked on this some more and like it much better. It is a 12 x16 collage piece on American Easel Wood panel with finished sides. Posted by Picasa

Lemons in Blue Bowl

Just about finished with this painting/collage piece. It is 11x14 on panel board with finished sides so you don't need to frame.

I used handmade paper from Judith Segall on the lemons...makes them look real.

We still have lots of snow on the ground but it is really pretty with the sun shining. Still very cold. Ken said it was 4ยบ this morning here. Now that's cold. Climbing into the 50's this next week. It will feel like a heat wave!

Snow is so pretty...light and fluffy.

What a beautiful snowfall this morning. It's only 7:30! Looks like more than 1-2" before the day is over.
