|Sadie in the snow|
Even though I'm not ready for bathing suit weather, I sure would like more sunshine, warmer weather, and clear roads. Tonight they say we may get 8-12 inches. This is puzzling, the Eastern Shore is known for 1 inch snows that melt as the day goes on. Sadie will definitely enjoy it and I guess I'll get some painting done.
We are supposed to have that show on Saturday. We'll see what happens each day, hope we can have it.
But, Most importantly everyone stay warm and safe, sending warm hugs, love,Diana

I've frozen a few washes outside as we got down to 9 degrees one night. Just put the watercolor wash out as quickly as possible and run back inside. Always weigh them down so they don't blow away. Had that happen. Well John wants an omelette so it is lunchtime. I'll talk to you soon. Stay warm and well.love and hugs to each of you,Diana

|My Amaryllis just bloomed, so I had to paint it.|
PS Cupcake , our kitty, went to the veternarian on Monday for her first visit. She is a female, well ,and Dr. Bailey said "She's Perfect." She hid for the rest of the day and only came out when John got home, then would not look at me. I was the one who took her to the vets!! ha ha..

|My watercolor class yesterday at NBG.|
I was tickled NBG was also having an Wildlife Class/Seminar too at the same time. Betty Ann came and got us and we enjoyed seeing a Red Tailed Hawk released!!!(One of us had tears in our eyes, most were snapping photos and holding our hearts.. It was amazing!
Then Elizabeth called me out into the hall and there was a live Barred Owl. You know how much I love owls and nature. Some of us gathered around and I touched it. Oh how soft. The eyes when he( Beauregard) closed them were covered in velvet...or so it appeared !!! We got to see a live Red Tailed Hawk.. and I touched his breast.. so soft. Talons of immense strength.. I was in heaven. If you would like to look up the organization--one of them. The one sharing with us was --Sacred Friends, Inc. www.sacredfriend.org , Katherine was the dear lady who shared Beauregard with us.
I will definitely be painting him. It is always inspiring to go to Norfolk Botanical Garden.
