Making Winter Fun?
I live in a fairly cold climate where the winters are very long. This year we've had record snowfalls as well as several long lasting bouts of zero degree temperatures. I've used my snowblower more times this past winter than I've had in the past two years. I've been trying to battle "cabin fever" by thinking of fun things to do with my family, and since I'm not much of a winter sports guy, that can be difficult to do. Speaking of a "fun" winter activities, here is a little fantasy painting I did a couple years ago. I'm not sure why the purple flying gators are there, I think it was something I envisioned as I was falling asleep. Anyways, I had a great time with the randomness and bright color palate of this painting. Maybe the icy air will give spark some more weird ideas. After all, it's only the beginning of February...and a long way to go till May.
