      I'd never painted a Snowy Owl before, and my goal was to make him as white and fluffy as they look. Thank you, your comment makes me realize I accomplished my goal!

      You certainly did! I've tried to capture the snowy owl before... They are difficult to pull off!

      We must all be thinking of owls. Perhaps it's because I have two or three flying over my house looking for a prospective mate! I'm going to try and paint every owl there is, but I'm not sure I know how many are still in existence? I guess I will have to do more research! I think I'm already tired...

      It's cold so I'm grumpy all the time, but I have gathered all my winter art supplies on sale so now I must set everything up so I can just paint away to my hearts content! I sure hope it's not too cold where you are! My osteoarthritic knees are killing me. My brain is like WTF??? I'm not old, and what the hell is all this ambient pain just wandering around in my body?? I've got work to do, and the reality is I limp to where I can sit down and draw or paint. AAAaaaaaaaaaargghh!!!!! Where is the girl who climbed trees, roller skated, ice skated, went sledding, worked 24 hour shifts and then some????? Where did the real me go? I've lost her in some limping around old woman. They shoot horses don't they???? I think I need a drink or some Hot Tea! Keep warm and as active as you can.

      Glad your getting all your supplies together in your studio so you can go happy with your brushes and pencils. It is running down to about 27 at night here, it hit 14 one night, but it has come back up considerably since that. Not nearly the snow I would have expected though, mostly rain events.

      I might suggest you try tart cherry juice concentrate. I have a good tablespoon in my tea each morning and it is an anti inflammatory, so it helps with the joints and muscle pains. I am studying and trying to learn Qigong from dvds by Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming, on the advice and suggestion of a very good friend and world class dancer. So as to improve flexibility, reduce physical and mental stress and tone and lose weight.
