CAM05894CAM05881Some days it’s about the snow.  The last several days there has been snow on the ground and frigid cold weather.  Yesterday the thermometer said 1 degree when I got up.  This morning it’s 7!  We often experience cold weather here in Virginia in the winter time but not cold like this.  It makes it difficult to do anything outside.  But I ventured out to take a few snow photos for reference.  Here are a couple from downtown.

Stay safe and warm.

Animals Llama 5 Animals Llama 2 Animals Llama 8 Animals Llama 10There are very few days that I don’t actually paint.  Yesterday was one of them.  I spent the afternoon riding around the county taking photos of animals for an upcoming workshop that I will be attending on “Painting Animals”.  I’m very excited to be taking the workshop.  It’s my birthday do-over since I was sick on my birthday this year.  A good do-over, huh?!

These are some of the photos that I got yesterday.  A good friend was kind enough to let me come to his place and get some Llama shots.  I have been wanting to paint one so here is my chance.  Just look at that FACE!!!

Yesterday I spent several hours at the location where we will build the new dog park with a marvelous photographer, Amanda Hoyle, and a delightful volunteer, Kaydee Gizzi.  These two worked really hard to get a great shot of every dog that came out to support our fundraiser for the park. 

                                                    

The lengths that Kaydee went to in order to set up the shot for Amanda was amazing.  Here she is holding Flaco.  Setting her up on the ground and then rolling out of the shot and Flaco runs like the wind to her mom.  Really funny to watch.  Many thanks ladies for your hard work and for your support of the Dog Park.  We are getting so close now.  Look for the next two events –  Community Yard Sale at Petco on Saturday, August 20th and a Jewelry Show and Auction on Tuesday, August 23rd at the Blue Ridge Arts Council Gallery.
