Friendly Visitor

Much to my surprise and that of my little dachshund, this friendly deer wandered into our yard yesterday.  He politely posed for three, good photographs. (And a handful of really blurry ones.)  We stared at him.  And he stared back at us.  He definitely added excitement to our late afternoon walk.  I hope to see (and paint) him again.

Our first winter storm is brewing outside.  It's cold and dark.  And spitting tiny snowflakes.  Dire weather predictions abound, but I love this kind of weather.  Welcome, December!  I am happy to see you!

Stay warm!
