OK. I never claimed to be the outdoorsy type. For about 8 years now, I've been driving past Lake Carroll and its geese (Canadian Geese, I now know, thank-you, Gary) and one lone white swan. I promised I'd paint her. I finally took the time this past weekend in the gorgeous 70 degree weather to photograph her.

So she's not a swan. I am so embarrassed.

But what the heck is she doing in a lake with all Canadian geese? I wonder if she has any idea how different she is. They didn't seem to notice. But I don't see any little babies that look like her...

HILDEGARDE is a 7x5 pastel on Pastelbord. Bidding begins at $100.00.

Well, I told you it would happen. I was bragging about the daffodils and forsythia in bloom here in Atlanta. Sunday we had a snow storm. As much as 5", I'm told, in some places. Don't know yet if the flowers are dead. I think I saw my hyacinth peaking up today. When I'm not frantically running back and forth from my studio to my house, where the computer is, I'll stop and check things out. But I think maybe my poor little garden survived the attack.
