Snow has Fallen and the Gifts are Given

I've spent much of the past 2 months working on some fairly last minute Christmas gift commissions for a couple of my friends. Thankfully those 2 pictures have led to at least 2 other commissions because I was feeling so pressed for time that I carried the drawings to work with me to work on during breaks.

The first is a watercolor portrait of Bear, a friend of mine's rottweiler who recently passed away.

The second is a portrait of my Boss's daughter and her Fiance. I've been rediscovering my love of pencil drawings and have been putting in some time to improve my drawing skills.

With that said the snow is falling in Indiana and the winds are picking up. So for those of us who live in the middle of nowhereville please for the love of GOD...

1. Don't think because you have an SUV/4Wheel Drive/or other large vehicle that it will keep you from skiddering on the ice. If its icy/snowy 65 mph is NO LONGER the appropriate speed to be driving.

2. Do not ride my bumper, if my 40 mph speed does no suit you please just pass me. If your overpriced Hummer rear ends my grand prix I will lose and you will owe a huge insurance if not funeral bill.

3 Dear HEAVENS please CLEAN the SNOW OFF of your HEADLIGHTS/TAIL LIGHTS. It is Important that we SEE you coming and going when the visibility is almost zero.

Now that I'm done ranting I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and will have a safe and happy New Year!
