Cactus one is done. And WOW! The background scanned p-e-r-f-e-c-t-l-y! Actually, I didn’t make any adjustments with this one. Is it the gesso? Hmm. Usually I have to adjust the colors used in this background to get them true to life. Hooray!
I had a wonderful surprise this weekend. Two of my pieces were included in Janine Vangool’s All About You newsletter. Thank you Janine! Always inspiring. Both Janine and the newsletter.

We had a lovely snow Sunday night. The roads cleared quickly, but the cold is preserving our delightful winter view.
In town running errands, I spotted this view. A fluffy patch of snowfall. Mingus is to the left, just out of view.
I had to tread carefully, and when I looked down, I noticed someone else had recently been there. My first thought was roadrunner. But their tracks are more like an “x”. These were about an inch and half long.
Later in the afternoon, the snow moved in over Mingus. The mountain was soon hidden from view. As you can see, we stayed sunny and dry.
Storm warnings are predicting a substantial storm starting tomorrow and lasting for two days. Prescott Valley is slated for 14 to 20 inches!! What?
Here are more of the gesso prepped postcards. I received a newsletter from the Desert Botanical gardens in Phoenix, and it put me in the mood to paint cacti. Warm thoughts on a chilly day. Mingus saw rain a few times. We had minuscule hail for about two minutes. :o/ Fingers crossed for rain showers tomorrow.
