And just like that the snow is back...


It's been sunny and mild (for this time of year) the last couple of days, so naturally you would think we were on our way to spring right? Forget it! As I was at my desk painting, suddenly it started snowing, and blowing around.  Well after a few hours, we now have a winter wonderland out there, the trees are covered with snow, and it is beautiful! Thank goodness I didn't remove my snow tires yet, you just never know what crazy weather you will get from one day to the next.
It didn't stop me from creating some new spring time art though, like the ACEO above.

This weekend was one where I mostly sat and watched movies. Yesterday I finally watched 2012, which I enjoyed. I'm probably in the minority but I've always loved disaster movies like War of the Worlds, the Day after Tomorrow, Independence Day.  Besides, I've had a crush on John Cusack for a couple of decades, lol, so that made the movie more enjoyable. He still looks great after all these years.

Next movie on the menu was The book of Eli. Fantastic movie, but it did have a bit of violence in it. Loved the premise, and would not have been able to predict the ending.

Today I watched Brothers, and boy it sure had some intense scenes in it! Another great movie which I would recommend.

The only dud of the bunch was an old one called Baker's Hawk. Sorry if anyone likes this, but I could only get through 15 minutes before I was bored, and moved on.

I'm still in that phase where I can't get too motivated to create, even though I did manage a couple of cards. Hopefully as the weather improves, I can feel like spending more time painting. For now I will just go with the flow.

This is really cute. It is cold here and we had hail yesterday but the snow stayed in the mountains. I will be really happy when it gets warm.

your spring art is adorable

I kind of feel the same way, so many gray days has taken my motivation away. Still I continue to make and enjoy art.

It really is an art to decide when to change out our seasonal tires!

Love your ACEO, Pink. I don't think it's ever going to be spring! I don't care what the calendar says...
Like all the movies you mentioned, except I've never even heard of Bakers Hawk.

Hi Betty, hope your weather is getting better. We're having a few sunny days here, as hot as summer. Last week it was freezing.
Hoping this sunshine will share itself with you very soon also!
Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Your ACEO is gorgeous!

We've been having snow off and on too.

I love disaster movies too. Haven't seen 2012 yet though. Independence Day is an all time favorite.

If you like disaster fils here are some I LOVE in case you haven't seen them... Armageddon, The Core, Twister (you must have seen that lol), Daylight, Deep Impact.

Also Broken Arrow is really good, not really a disaster movie. And we saw Unstoppable recently which was also very good.
