Staying warm

What lovely weather we are having! 3-4 inches of snow fell during the day yesterday, sending the kids home from school early, and canceling school for today. It's quite beautiful, actually. I would be tempted to go tromping through the woods taking pictures, but the wind chill is near zero, and will stay there for several more days. It's overcast as well, making the lighting less than ideal. In short, it's a good time to stay inside and draw and paint.

Yesterday I did a series of sketches in preparation for a new pastel. I'll start on the pastel itself later today. The idea for this one came from a picture that a friend had posted on Facebook. She's an amateur photographer with an excellent eye. It just goes to prove you can find inspiration in unexpected places, even Facebook. Thanks, Katie!
