Can the warm be far behind?

It's a wind chill of minus 7, and only expected to get to 16 F here in the balmy south. The Canadiens have generously shared their polar temps with us, and I'm taking advantage of it to make some frozen paintings. While I psych myself up for sub-freezing fun, I'm taking respite in a little bit of painting summer. Joy 11x14 watercolor on 100% cotton paper

Gettin’ ready for the summer

These sweet babies were in my garden last year. I can't wait to see what they do this year in the second season! I'm experimenting, well "playing" with a more abstract methodology. Not sure if it'll become a regular way of painting for me, but it serves to kick me loose when I'm stuck.
