I have this last (maybe) snowperson helping me untangle Christmas lights. How do they get so confused just sitting in a box over the space of a year??
The wind and rain lashes against the studio window as a wild storm rages tonight and into the next day or two. Better rain than snow I think, even if the snowperson disagrees.
I've also been doing a little study of BD, my favourite duck. BD, if you didn't know, stands for Big Duck. Not too imaginative for a name but after 10 years he's used to it and so am I. And he is big. More turkey or goose size than duck. He's a Muscovy duck that doesn't quack but sort of hisses and pants. He's quite sweet if not a little unusual looking to many people. I'll try a portrait of him in oils or acrylics soon. The Other One says that when I do portraits of animals on the farm it tends to signal their demise. I hope not in this case.
