More from the iPad

 Chelsea house in snow
iPad drawing

I've been meaning to do a little sketch of this house
since I found the photo reference. This is a house
in Chelsea Quebec, near my brother's house.  His
neighbourhood is rural and charming and looks
good in all seasons. 

I'm working on a drawing and a couple of paintings, but don't
have anything to show you yet.  Today our son Sam
came into town with his class to meet people in
the business.  He's in his final year in acting at
university.  So we spent the evening with him, and
it was wonderful to see him. 

I promise I won't be on the iPad exclusively much
longer, but it does a nice job with snow.  And hey!  We
got some yesterday and verrrrry cold weather.  So
all of Toronto is back in costume again, black
down coats with hoods, mittens, hats, great big boots.

Have an enjoying-your-season day.
High five to you Sam.

Barbara, I love all the fun you're having on the iPad! This little piece is a gem, and I'll keep watching. Stay warm up there!

Your iPad drawings continue to evolve and grow--this one is beautiful: the lines, the colors! Keep going, I say--I'm loving it.

Hi Julie,

Thank goodness it was a bit warmer today. It gets too cold for the dog's paws, and that's not good. And thanks for your kindness. There are bound to be more before the Christmas tree leaves the studio.

Hi Laura,

Some of it depends on time, the rest on sleep and understanding. I am the opposite of a techie, but the toy gives good colour, and that's fun.

XO Barbara
