Snow Day in Raleigh

20140216-112233.jpg

Similar to the rest of the US, we’ve experienced an usually cold and snowy winter here so the locals tell me. They aren’t prepared to handle an inch never mind the 6 or so we got on top of ice last Wednesday and Thursday. The roads were a mess – slushy and icy – with patches of black ice. Cars spun out of control all over the highways and local roads.

This painting actually started out as a spring flower arrangement! I’ll get there.

Have a new puppy and after being up all week at all hours of the night and picking up after puppy accidents, I was inspired with those colors this morning (while it was still dark out).  As the sun came up and my mood shifted, I did another painting that was happier and brighter.  I went back to the puppy painting and decided to add the red which I love.  Both still unnamed although the second one reminds me of poppies.  Pic came out blurry – it looked better on my phone!
