I painted this little dude over the weekend.  We were stuck at the bottom of the icy driveway and it made me think of spring.  I did another one, which I’ll show you tomorrow.  Since we are anticipating being snowed in again for a few days, I have some fish paintings started.  I’ll just pretend I am in the Caribbean!  :D
