More layers.  More background.  Still having problems with her right eye.

I came so close to scrapping this one yesterday.  A "mood" settled in that was the result of dropping children at malls and almost getting shmucked by a bus driver that shouldn't be behind any wheel.  Needless to say when part of the painting wasn't doing what I was imagining I wanted to rip it stomp on it and move on.  I walked away from it for a couple of hours and came back when I had calmed down.  I still may do a jig on it yet....just not yet.

The photo isn't actually this "orange"  bad lighting for the camera right now.

It's -18.4 F (-28 Celcius) with the windchill right now apparently.  This is not December weather but rather January's.  I want to move to Florida.  Anyone in Florida want to adopt me;-)  Even Vancouver would be okay.  Pleeeeeeeease!

Issue #26 is almost done. Mail to Canadia takes a bit longer than domestic mail, but it should not be long.

You're welcome to come to Cleveland for a visit but we're not doing much better than you. I do love this picture.

It is snowing here in Alberta and cold, about-15C. It is supposed to get really cold tomorrow, and then warm up. So hold on it is coming your way. Love the picture, and I like the squinty eye.

It was terribly cold here last week, but now it's snowing and milder here in Manitoba.

I love this drawing! Don't destroy it!

Happy Holidays to you and yours!
