Baby, It's Cold Outside!

It's cold in Chicago! The sun did come out for about five minutes today.

Even though our Christmas decorations are down I just can't remove the holiday greenery from the planters on the back deck. Since we moved to the Midwest my favorite color has become red. I think it counteracts the long gray winters. Those berries will keep me smiling for awhile!

I want to thank Raena for reminding me how long it's been since my last post. My apologies to all who stop by to visit! One of my goals this year is to post more often - not off to a good start but that leaves me plenty of room for improvement. How's that for spin?


  1. It's indeed too cold for me! Not funny! But your sketch is lovely, very economically done. Love the colors!

    Happy New Year!

  2. You're quite welcome! And thanks for updating! I was having withdrawals from your drawings.

    As much as I thought it would be easier to post more often in winter, I am finding that I'm less inspired by all the grays.

  3. I think we're getting payback around here for a mild October, November and December ... it hasn't stopped snowing since the first. I don't mind snow or cold even, I'd just rather have it spread out more, you know?

    I love this illo ... your loose, colorful style is something I wish I could do!

  4. I always enjoy seeing what you post, however often! This is lovely. Stay warm!!
