May Your Days be Merry and Bright

Twice a month at the Hammonton Arts Center, the Painter’s Atelier meets. The Painter’s Atelier is a group of painters interested in learning from one another. Each meeting has a theme. Today’s theme was “snow.”  Below is my wintry, watercolor still life including a snow globe. It is fascinating to see the variety of work 5 different artists can create using a single word.

Coyotes Mate for Life

This Sunday is Valentine’s Day. In celebration of the holiday of love and affection, I’m doing something a little different. I’m not buying flowers or chocolates. This weekend I am posting drawings of animals that mate for life.

Coyotes do not celebrate Valentines Day, but they are monogamous and show signs of affection for one another.  Today’s post is for all those canine couples out there. Enjoy your weekend.
