Snowy day

is the title of my favorite children's book by Ezra Jack Keats - and it is the state of today here in NH. The giant flakes are floating down and as harmless as they seem, the forecast calls for an icing of rain/sleet later so we are all closed down at artstream. Working from home has its advantages on a day like today. Endless green tea and snuggles on the couch with daughter Chloe for starters ... watching the sledders down the back hill (see above) yet another..

I did pop into artstream to check on things though and must say that the show "Newness" is still as fresh and wonderful as we left it. Do plan to drop by for a look or peruse these beautiful pieces online. They are a special mix of quiet beauty which would look wonderful in any space.
A couple of linkity links too for you today as there is some special goodness out there in the internets - check out these great photos - turned BOOK! - from dear Cally from callycreates. She has been busy during her convalescence and has made very good use of her time. South of France sounds so good right now, doesn't it (wistfully looking out the window at all that white ...)
Over at Poppytalk, Jan is at it again with the Winter Colo(u)rs Week! I love this each and every time she does this - it is over at flickr and super easy to play along with! I was so pleased she featured my "red" painting called Knowing 2 in her first day of the week. Thanks so much Jan!

Also!, there is Art 4 Heart going on down under during the devestation of floods ravishing the shores of Australia. Gallery artist Flossy-P has joined forces with other Aussie artists to help with the cause. Pop over there and make a bid. Get something GOOD and do some GOOD!

Locally - 3S is working hard at the Pepsi refreshes everything site to get some funding. Do good there by VOTING daily - go on, it's for NH's first Contemporary arts center. It doesn't get cooler than that!
