And here's a bit of cheating--working on the format of my blog today, rather than on its content: a card and envelope I painted of an idealized, simplified view from Peter's window after the snowstorm last Valentine's day. So these are about a year old. What a beautiful snowfall it was--absolutely sparkling and pristine. (I did a few of these; this one's going out as a thank-you card to Dan and Krisi ...). Snowing again tonight--always looks magical.
