This was the final painting in my month of artwork. I’ve just returned home from a lovely holiday time with family up north in Minnesota, where we got a dose of freezing temperatures and falling snow. Now I’m back in Arizona and it’s warm enough to open a window and let the cats bask. Me—I’ve brought back a cold/flu virus and have been dragging around all day. At least I wasn’t sick for the trip. Happy wishes to you all for 2014!
