Heaven Help Me, But It's Winter In Maine


10 x 8" pen and ink sketch of myself compromised......may it never happen! 
It has warmed up to a chilly 12°F outside of our cottage. It was 2 degrees this morning when I got up. I am dressed in an undershirt, a turtleneck, an alpaca sweater and heavy weight jeans.  Then I add a Polartec jacket under my down jacket,with snow pants to cover my jeans, then I go down to the barn to do chores. God help me if I slip and fall. I would never be able to get back up again. I would just lie there until spring came. Or maybe I could take a selfie of myself ( as I always carry my phone) and send it to Facebook and show everyone a picture of me, …the last picture of me before I died of frostbite on my way down to the barn .

Happy New Year All

"By The Light Of The Moon" watercolor and ink , © 2013

Our Christmas celebration has come and gone. We had a great time with our family, all together with presents galore.
I hope you had a wonderful day too.  Our fields are free of their snow blanket and our horses think spring has come.
But it is not even New Years eve yet.............
Here's wishing everyone a wonderful New Year with peace and plenty for everyone.

I am back in my studio each day now, working on commission work,
and I am hopeful that I will be finding time for new original works too.
Happy New Year!!!
