Chase's portrait!

I painted this dog portrait as a Christmas gift for a family friend. It's a surprise, but I know he and his family are going to love it! (It was painted in acryla gouache.)

We put the last of the decorations up this past weekend. Now all I need is more Seattle snow!

It's December already!?!

I'm not sure what exactly happened to November other than snow here in the Seattle area, Thanksgiving feasting as well as a busy full-time job schedule. Even with the hectic pace of the month, I did manage to create and submit another recipe to They Draw & Cook. This time it was for the Holiday contest. My previous one made it to the blog on November 10th (this one), so we'll see if my little snowman makes it as well! It's not "traditional holiday", as in directly Christmas related, but it means holiday to me with the bright colors of all the Christmas lights and the snowman reminding me of cold days spent playing outside in the snow and then coming inside to warm up with a hot drink. Good times...
