SNOW DAY!!!!!!!

Snow Day...a sketch
At our house, nothing was ever more welcome than a snow day! Status Interruptus. Negative Space waiting to be filled. Unplanned fun. I have such fond memories of those days. After the news that our school would be closed, the boys often went back to sleep. It was then that I moved in for some uninterrupted sketching. The faces melding with the bed covers, the blankets and the snow. Today in Northeast Ohio, we are in the midst of a blizzard....a snow day to be certain, although the boys are all living on their own. I still feel the twinges of unexpected pleasures as the day unfolds in a way that not anticipated.
