Winter Walk Painting Mixed Media

I was inspired by life events to make this painting.  It was a cold day and I pulled our two girls down the road in their wagon.  Our neighbor's Cairn Terrier came out to spy us, I dressed him in a puppy jacket and added him to out festive warm toned troop.  The sky was crisp and wintry and the only thing that was missing were cups of hot chocolate, added for my artistic pleasure.

  10. I love the saturated color in this! Such a fun and cute scene (especially with the added hot chocolates, though I imagine in real life they may have caused a bit of spilling problems!) Beautiful sky!
