So after two days of shoveling, our neighbors got together and shoveled out our whole street (It's narrow so no plows can get down it) , and today we drove to the county to get my Mom's driveway cleared.

In the midst of that I got a few moment to play with some pastels at my kitchen table.

Still avoiding the postcards..but since we are gearing up for another foot of snow on it's way tomorrow.  I am going to spend the morning at my kitchen table studio!
