Confined



I cannot believe this snow and ice has confined us to the house for nearly a week. The house is gleaming, ironing all done, cakes baked, soup made and in the freezer but ... if I don't go out soon I may go mad! On the upside My Jack Russell's been having a great time.

Frosty designs on windowpanes are a marvel, and you've managed to capture their fascinating coolness (& coldness) in a graphically pleasing way that would lend itself to so many other applications.

No snow in South Florida, but so cold. Had to get out of the yard, thank goodness for heat seats in my car. Finally starting to warm up.

Wow! This is beautiful and it reminds me of the frozen window panes at my house. I love the design and details. Well at least the cold is inspiring you to great work! It generally me want to curl up with a book and hot chocolate! I love your little terrier, what a cutie! Happy New Year!

I love walking on snow and feeling crisp cold air in my face. It's too hot here. I can see some shapes in your design: a fish, leaf, flower and some twigs. I really enjoy the beauty of nature from your drawing.

Yes, great minds indeed! Very nice illustration. At least a lot of snow helps to get the house clean. Hope you make it out soon!

I saw UK got to a whopping -20 the other night. But then, I live in Canada where that is frequent. Wait until you see a -40 night!

Thanks for visiting my site. At least the cold weather inspired some nice illustrations ;)

Simple lovely zen piece to me.
Hello Jack Russell! You are so cute! Are you going to take over Santa Clause's place this year?

Another really nice graphic design. The puppies always like it better when we are stuck at home all day. My greyhounds were very upset when Christmas break was over.
