February snow

We began this fine Monday morning with a heavy wet six inches of snow. It is quite pretty, as if every surface outdoors is slathered with a thick vanilla frosting layer. As my son and I shoveled our way down the driveway we agreed that it was perfect weather for snowman constructing. He had to leave for school, and I am working in my studio, and no snow sculpture has appeared in our yard yet today.
I thought of these illustrations that I painted (digitally) for Wild Animal Baby magazine.
