It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (February 11): 02/11/19
I have five pages left in my sketchbook and will hopefully be mailing it back in a week or two, well before the March 30th deadline. I'm taking a multimedia approach by using acrylics, pen and ink, and colored pencils as needed.
On Monday my new lens arrived, a 75-300 mm lens. Of course it's been raining again for most of the week, so my chances to test it out have been limited to the birds who visit my yard and the gorgeous rainy sunsets.
Last Monday it got cold enough during our day long rainstorm that the local hills got a dusting of snow. Actually this weekend, some of them got a second, thicker dusting. The photo below was taken Tuesday morning.

I always enjoy looking at your paintings. I enjoyed Bellewether, especially since its history takes places in my province.
Comment #2: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:10:00
I'll be posting my review of Bellewether next week.

We had a lot of flooding last year it rained so much in such a short time. Hope it wasn't too bad!
Comment #4: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:12:00
Around us it wasn't so bad. Now we have another big storm rolling through. It's supposed to be here for the next five days.

>I'm really wanting to read Dragon Pearl. I hope you are enjoying it.
Comment #6: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:15:00
Oh you should. It's an excellent book.
Comment #7: Monday, February 11, 2019 at 08:21:15
I have Dragon Pearl on my list!
Comment #8: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:18:00
Move it to the top.
Comment #9: Monday, February 11, 2019 at 09:41:20
Wow those are amazing renderings of birds!! I love the cardinal. You are right, they we do have them here, but we don't have Acorn Woodpeckers! Great shot!
Comment #10: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:20:00
I love watching the acorn woodpeckers.
Comment #11: Monday, February 11, 2019 at 10:21:38
Lovely sketches! I like Kate Carlisle's cozies. Enjoy, and thanks for visiting my blog.

I have a love hate relationship with the Bibliophile series. The last two though have been top notch. The current one is quite good so far.

Nice bunch of books. I like your photo of the mountains with snow. We have lots of new snow too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #14: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:27:00
Our local snow doesn't count as lots and it was gone by the end of the next day.
Comment #15: Monday, February 11, 2019 at 15:35:22
It was very exciting to see snow in the local area! And love your sketches again!
Comment #16: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:28:00
The snow was a bit of excitement. I'll have a few more sketches to share next week.
Comment #17: Monday, February 11, 2019 at 20:45:47
Love your paintings, as always. The cozies on your list look so good. Hope you have a great week!
Comment #18: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:31:00
The cozies have been fun— Vivien Chien's especially.
Comment #19: Monday, February 11, 2019 at 21:00:01
Your drawings are gorgeous!
I love Dragonbreath!
Comment #20: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:33:00
Dragonbreath was fun. I plan to read the others in the series.
Comment #21: Monday, February 11, 2019 at 22:20:20
I'll have to look for your review of Bellewether and see what you thought of it.
Comment #22: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 20:35:00
I'll be posting it on the 19th.
Comment #23: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 22:33:39
Love that photo of the hills with the snow!
Comment #24: Tuesday, February, 12, 2019 at 22:36:00
You should have seen all the cars pulled over so people could photograph the snow.
Comment #25: Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 00:54:38
Wow, great paintings! And I love birding. Unfortunately, the Acorn woodpecker is not in the Midwest. Really cute!
Comment #26: Tuesday, February, 12, 2019 at 22:38:00
Lots of your birds aren't here so it's a trade off.
