Northern Cardinal & Winter
I dropped everything this morning to paint this Cardinal. For no very good reason. And then I splattered red paint EVERYWHERE... like on me, my glasses, the table and floor and wall and a couple of unfinished paintings which are now ruined. Sigh. But worth it? Look how gloriously messy he is!
Totally worth it.
Cardinals remind me of winter and winter is getting me down this week. I am afraid of driving in the snow so I have been kind of hermit-like lately. Every time I do need to leave the house, there is a huge snowfall. I arrived at the dentist the other day in tears because I was sliding all over the road. I am also afraid of slipping on ice while walking... pregnancy definitely effects my balance and I am not as sure of my footsteps as normal. I will try to focus on the positives... how much painting I am getting done, snuggle time with Finn and the kitties, and naps!
