Groundhog Day and Another Birthday

It is groundhog day and that means the hubster is celebrating another birthday. Dana and the girls are coming out for dinner and I have promised to make her favorite Flu Chaser Chicken Soup. I made the stock last evening, so the next step is to get a head of garlic sprinkled with olive oil and into the oven.

Meanwhile, I have a guest artist in the studio this morning. She is new to the art scene and at this time is mostly concerned with drawing around her hand and what we call "sticker art". Here are pictures of her progress this morning:

As you can see, she takes her art pretty seriously. There are already three finished canvases (read colored card stock) being held up with magnets on the refrigerator. I am now happy to announce that I non longer have two young artists sharing my studio, I now have three.

I'm pretty sure my only art to get done today will be the making of soup and the caring for the little artist who will be with me all day. Right now I am being serenaded by the little one and she is asking for me to find Barney on YouTube so that she can watch it on my computer.

I hope to see you tomorrow.
