I used to hate the winter because I couldn't do all the fun stuff you get to do in the warmer weather. But I finally realized what the winter is for: to hibernate: to lay around all day : to watch old movies : to paint a picture: to hang out with your pets and cuddle on the couch : to catch up on your reading. Now I love the winter because of all those things I would feel guilty about doing in the warmer weather. It's a great balance and I finally found it in accepting the cold weather. I finished a painting yesterday and it's a painting that makes me smile. I call it "Afghan Hound Love." I remember a very cool Afghan Hound that lived on my street when I was growing up and it was so beautiful. It is one of my favorite dogs to paint next to the pug which is probably the opposite of an Afghan Hound. I love dogs and plan on painting as many as I can this winter. Peace, Love, Dogs!

I have been working a lot on my art this month. I'm actually enjoying the winter and staying inside and creating cards and painting rocks. For Valentine's Day this year, my cards are a Pug Valentine's Day card and a Love Valentine's Day card. They are for sale in my Etsy and Ebay shops. The Pug card I painted a while ago in acrylic and had it made into a card. The Love card is part of the painting on rocks series and choose love after reading so many books on how only Love is real. I love making cards and painting on rocks. Please let me know what you think of the Valentine's Day Cards.
