Oh what a beautiful day!


Today was a nice sunny day! The temperature was ABOVE freezing by about 4 degrees and it's starting to smell like Spring :)
I know that the first day of Spring isn't until March 20th, but I am counting down the days! I'm all set to get my spring wardrobe out. I can't wait to spend days down at harbourfront , sitting on the dock watching the boats. Oh I can't wait! Today really made me feel like it is on it's way.

Looks like Babushka and her friend the fox are out enjoying the weather too on their bicycle built for two!
They are currently up for grabs on ebay
Warm hugs!

Your paintings are so warm and whimsical. I always have wondered if you do children's book illustration?

I haven't done children's book illustration YET :)
I'd love to! I have illustrated an instructional dog training book though.

Hi, I just had to stop in to tell you that my family just watched the movie "Nine". As we were watching the extras, I vaguely remembered reading on your blog one time that your boyfriend worked on it. I guess I remembered that because we always love Tim Burton flicks and so I tucked it away in my memory. Anyway, we really enjoyed the movie and the animation was AWESOME! My daughter is an interactive graphic design student--maybe he can give her some tips some day~ Have a great weekend and stay warm, spring is around the corner!
