One week before Christmas..


Mister Snowman    12" x 9"    o/p

Today is a rather typical winter day in my part of the world. The wind is blowing, it is cold and the snow is coming down, making it a challenge to navigate the slippery streets. Needless to say, I will not be painting outside today.

So, what to paint ? ! It entered my mind to paint something that would allow me to just lay paint, something that would allow me to create without being "guided" outside my own mind. Being influenced by the day, and all, what better subject than "a snowman" ?  Make it up as I go !...

And it really was a fun snowman to paint.  Fulfilling in many ways.

'til next..

Gidday Mate!... I am off to visit the lads today... so I can't work on my own Edward's inspired "Snow person"... See How politically correct I've become travellin' "side-by-each" with you Pal? HA HA!!

You contine to inspire me and make painting an adventure Loner. I am grateful for the gift of your Friendship!

As strange as it would seem... I have actually spent more of my life time with you than my own brothers and sister. What does that make "You"??? I wonder!...

I love the painterly.. gestural blend of cartoonist and fine artist in this one Frank.

Happy New Year to you and the Gang! Talk at ya soon!

Happy Trails!
