When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

Getting into the winter spirit

Well, as much as I can anyhow, in Southern California,  Probably just as well, 'cuz cold weather and I are not the best of friends! I still cringe at the thought of all my frozen toeses and noses back in my Chicago days. Tilda, however, doesn't look the least bit uncomfortable sitting on her bench surrounded by a light, dusty snowfall. I only wonder what she's doing there? Is she waiting for a bus, or watching a parade, or .......


This was my first chance to use Copics for all my coloring so I started out slow, with just a couple colors, the blues and greens and, of course, the skin tones. I'll work up the nerve to use more as I go along (I hope!)
