A writer friend Abigail, called today. She had been inspired to write a poem after seeing one of my older postcards that I had displayed in my gallery. Most of them are not for sale as I consider them my journal, and she had asked to have a copy of it and another one that spoke to her. I said I'd scan it and send to her. And since the scans are right on my desk top and I haven't had a paintbrush in my hand today since I'm getting ready to go to Juneau for a couple of days, I'm putting them here. They were done in January 2006, before I started blogging.

This is pretty much how its been looking off and on since I got home from California, though its been raining more often.

My note on back: "1-9-06 I walked at the duck pond and these 7 swans were there. sketched in the cold and painted when I got home." It must have been warmer than usual, because the pond is usually frozen in January.

Oh these are both so dreamy - I especially love the swans!

The snow scene is so pretty Carole. we had our first snow, and I think a lot more is on the way. I am going to experiment with painting it!

Sandy, Thank you. Although almost a year ago, the sketch brings back the afternoon in the cold sketching the swans... one time a very quick sketch is a favorite of mine.

Thank you, Mary Anne. Have fun painting the snow.
