Ces said...

LOL! I thought it was Snap because of the dog's nap :-) Haha...You always come up with the clever interpretation even though I am in a world of my own. I see the dog blogs too!

Hey this painting is a little different for you. The house is not the main character? I really like it, you kind of went outside your bounds and created a really fun scene.

Random York said...

You definitely have a signature look Valerie- This is very pleasent to view!

Liz Jones said...

OOh! I like that!! I always feel like snow is a snuggly blanket, too!

those ski slopes would look good right about now
seems we went from winter to summer here. and it wasn't much of a winter either.

Hi Valerie,

I get the shivers looking at this illustration. It's really cute, but...

I remember years back in the Pacific NW, in the dead of winter, and not able to afford 24 hours of heat. My wife and I would crawl under as many blankets as possible. Put on a stocking cap (preferably of the ski-mask variety), and watching our breath crystallize in the air, go to sleep.

If hell is a really cold place, then I could affirm that getting up in the morning was truly hell!

I am not one to appreciate cold snaps, but this illo makes one long for one! Lovely colors, and composition, and I too love the dog!

marc said...

Hi Val,
I like much snow… But I don’t like to skiing!

One week ago, I found one to Border collie. It was abandoned… I will adopt it!
Nice illo!
Have a beautiful week !

Val, thanks for your comment on my blog. In reference to your scanning issues, I'm wondering if you have Photoshop? When I scan things in with my scanner they come out dark, but there is some Photoshop wizardry to fix it. I'd love to help out if you want it. A couple exchanged emails, or a phone call, whatever. You can get my info from www.scottcuzzo.com if you want to contact me. I could even meet you at a Starbucks in Malibu with my laptop if you want. Happy to help, no worries if not!
