Watery Reeds

Watery Reeds, 6 x 6

We are having a cold snap here in Austin - I about froze just running outside to take this picture. These are the days that we stay tucked in our studios with scarves on, and wonder how our friends in the north manage to survive (and thrive) in much colder temps. Stay warm, all!!

Hi Laurel,

Survive yes, maybe not thrive when it's 20 below Celsius. Furnaces,
hot tea, Mexican food, and art all help. Super painting.

XOXOXOXOBarbara
