Paint Party Friday... Thistles and Tropical Lovebirds

Brrr.... 'tis a wee bit chillywoo here today.
We've had snow flurries and the biting arctic wind is still blowing a hoolie about the place. 
We expected the snow to arrive yesterday, but it didn't arrive until the early hours of the morning. 
I'd nipped to the bathroom (as you do around 3am) and couldn't see out through the windows, even with the full moon. The snowflakes had been blown horizontally across the field and had stuck onto the window.
I wasn't really aware just how cold it was until I walked barefoot into the bathroom and my feet nearly froze to the floor tiles... to say nothing about the icy toilet seat! 

As it's Friday, I thought I'd share my artwork and link up to Paint Party Friday once again.
I had mentioned previously that I would paint another thistle and here it is...

I'm going to have a hygge day today.
I shall enjoy looking out at this wintery weather whilst the fire roars and I enjoy painting.
I thought I might paint another winter scene on a roof slate

But for those of you who are missing and craving some colour, then how about these cute lovebirds below.
Such gorgeous tropical colours that make me crave spring even more.

They are my daughters newest design and if you'd like to check out her shop, then click on her name.

This illustration is a print, but she also has cards available, which is perfect timing for Valentine's Day.
Thanks for visiting my place today. 
I hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend.
