... is currently the favorite flavor of the house. My mother bought a bag of homemade winterblue cello-wrapped clear hard candies at the local Christmas Food and Folk Art Fair. And we are all hooked on the snappy, glue-your-nostrils-together-cold, peppery hot and sweet treats. So I decided I needed to take a few minutes away from my commissioned orders and paint a sweet little Winter Blue Fairy. She is available on eBay and Etsy, with a Buy It Now option. It would make a very swell gift. This little painting gives off an almost-cold-to-the-touch wintery feeling! It was fun painting it all in shades of blue. I decided to add mica flakes to the background and as I was doing it I noticed it sparkled the same way the snow did in the afternoon today. Then, right on my window sill, came a red gros beak bird, one of those fluffy Christmas red chubby volatile, spying what I was doing through the glass. Et voila! Just what the painting was missing! I think it is just perfect, little bits of winter from here and there, all parts of a cold sunny day here in my little arctic spot of the world ... ARE YOU ALL READY FOR CHRISTMAS ?
