The early Spring session begins next week…hoping that winter releases it’s icy grip soon. The bulbs will begin to peek through the frozen ground. The skunk cabbage will thaw the forest floor….the snowdrops, daffy-dillies and and tulips will soon be here. I do love the winter but this winter has tested us all…we all are looking forward to the warm sunshine of Spring! :O)

Clearly no class today…stay home, stay warm….the snow seems to be endless…….
Some good news that has nothing to do with being snowed in…. I have been offered the use of the WPA Gallery at Pound Ridge Nature Reserve next December for a student show. We will have an opening reception and have a great venue to show your lovely drawings and paintings! I’m very happy to have a place for our winter show once more! In the spring we will have a spring show at Lasdon that will be open to the public as well. So start thinking of pieces you would like to put in the spring show :O) (no date yet…sometime in May).
Come on spring…..February can’t last forever…can it?

This winter is holding on as tight as it can!
NO parking up at the house today…there is too much snow :O( We all have to park in the lower lot…so pack lightly and dress warmly :O) For anyone that cannot manage the walk you may want to come on Saturday….I will happily give credit or adjust cost to anyone who cannot make up the class. Be warm and safe!
The snow and ice is heading our way so there will be no Wednesday class this week. You are all welcome to join the Thursday class…there is planty of room for all If Thursday is not possible you can makeup tomorrow’s class at any later date :O)
Cabin fever is setting in!!! Stay warm….
