Meanwhile, Down In The Village...

Elevatored down from the mountain top for supplies 
today. After the Mayor assured us all major streets 
were plowed and/or salted. 
Apparently, that meant mostly around City Hall.

Locust Street, major bus route east. Come Spring melt.

Two blocks from my place, just three blocks
from City Hall. Deep ice snow ruts. Illegal 
parking on both sides is a Philadelphia tradition.

Approaching Rittenhouse Square from the west

Only clear streets I saw, on or across the
Ben Franklin Parkway. You can see snow
piled on the Red Tail Hawk nest on the top 
floor right window sill of the Franklin Institute. 
Capistrano has its Swallows. Philly, our Red 
Tail Hawk family. Mr. & Mrs. were seen 
adding twigs to their nest before the snow 
came. Hope, Spring, Eternal!

Nice thing about living on a mountain top
in center city Philadelphia, the view of 
snow covered peaks in the morning after
a blizzard.

Not blogging much lately. Using the time
to practice and learn more about making
digital art. 
Hoping to make it to Carnegie Hall.........

Secrets From The Drawing Board

(click on images to enlarge)
Better late than never. 
Leading up to the holidays, my head 
has been full of errands and preparations,
rather than the weather. 
So when all the snow fell on the east 
coast I missed sharing my blizzard 
that fell on Washington DC from
by Lynda DeWitt, HarperCollins.
In the first spread the US Capitol
dome can be seen out the window.
In the next spread, with tongue in
cheek, I drew my dear old friend
Nan N. (in the beret) who lives down 
there, clearing the heavy snow off
her windshield. 
Looks just like her.

Book Illustrators gotta have fun too.
Happy New Year to all!!
