Year in Review: March

March brought signs of Spring and another Cardinal painting ...


and I revisited the baby doll to repaint the background flowers as sunflowers ...
 

I have since gold-leafed a frame for the doll painting which you can see in the right hand corner of the gallery below.


Another cat study in a different style below--acrylic paint on unstretched canvas ...


as compared to a more detailed version of the same Maine Coon cat (2 views) painted in watercolor and pastel.

Today's Blessing: Today we had snow in Houston--enough to stick and leave a white powdery covering on rooftops, plants and cars. We haven't had snow on December 10 since 1944. It was magical watching the flakes fall.
