A View From My Window

Here in the usual sunny Carolina's, we woke this morning to a winter wonderland. Snow, which we don't usually see, is so exciting. At 8 am, the kids already have cabin fever, and its still snowing!! Its going to be a LLLLOOOONNNNNGGGGG weekend.


I slept in a bit this morning...til5 am, and went straight to the studio. Felt like doing things a bit differently this morning, and I started playing with paint and gesso on watercolor paper. I usually only work in my journals, so we will see where these little experiments go.
I also have the strangest urge to go shopping for art supplies...imagine that. Something about being stuck indoors of course makes me want to head to my studio, but also to Jerry's. I guess some online shopping will be in order, but, in all honesty, nothing replaces walking around the art store touching all of the stuff! Since it seems that this will be an all day, all weekend event, the shopping trip will have to wait. By Monday morning, I will probably have pulled all of my hair out, so art supplies will be the least of my concerns!
Until next time,
Ophelia

We had snow that lasted a month here in the UK - unusual for us. Hope you all had a lot of fun in the snow :-)

Wow, you have almost as much snow in your backyard as I do in mine - and I live in Finland! Thank you for your kind comment on my blog "Journalofadyer", it warmed my heart!
