It's been between -20 and -40c here. Since I couldn't spray my toad painting outside I had to use our furnace room to do it. I opened the window for ventilation and got to work. It wasn't too bad at first, but after a while the flying snakes started to swarm around making it difficult to spray the painting without spraying them. Eventually it got done.

I started another portrait, or two, or three after a I took a couple of Advil. I had a headache for some strange reason. I'm having a hard time settling down to work at something new. I haven't found that perfect picture that I have a great drive to create. Well, actually I do have one, but not something I can post the progress of as with many of the portraits of other peoples kids that I do. Flowers are beautiful but just don't grab my interest right now. You'd think I'd learn theres a down to every up after the completion of a work.

I brought it to the framer. I don't have the same sense of satisfaction I often feel. I guess I need to get something back framed to feel the excitement about the next one. I'm still awaiting the return of the previous one as well.

I'm partially completed step 2 of the next part of my coloured pencil demonstration for this blog. I'll try to post it later today.

Hey - can you convert those temperatures to American degrees.

Kurt, how about this, it's DARNED FREAKING COLD and still in the minuses even in Fahrenheit.

I don't know if it will make you feel any better, but I've been watching the US networks, and they call the cold fronts an "Alberta Clipper", so they mostly blame the cold on us out west here.

You know "C" you're right! Here I've been blaming all of Canada, but I think it is all Alberta's fault;-)
