It's SNOWING! The Great Pacific Northwest has been blanketed in a beautiful layer of fluffy white snow; children are sledding down the hill near Lamson Park, and the rest of us are staying warm and cozy inside.

To celebrate the fast approaching Winter Solstice, I have designed six new "LET IT SNOW DESIGNS", featuring Cat Ladies and their Feline Friends, snuggled up in their winter coats

The original artwork is in the form of miniature watercolor paintings in the ACEO (art trading cards) format. These are currently for sale at

You'll also find these designs on a variety of t-shirts, mugs, tote bags, note cards, and more at

Enjoy your Winter Wonderland, wherever you might be. Thanks for visiting!

A special "wish upon a star" for you and your loved ones during this holiday season and during the coming year: beautiful, shining moments of peace when you need them the most. Moments of quiet solitude, reflection, inspiration, fulfillment, joy, enlightenment, sharing, illumination...all of these are components of peace and I believe they can be quite contagious.

Not long ago Dave and I saw a roadside sign that said "If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours". It was hopelessly hokey, but we couldn't help ourselves: we instantly looked at each other, smiled, and then burst out laughing at how beautifully effective that sign had been.

Thank you to all of my wonderful customers and friends, old and new, for giving me the opportunity to share my artwork with you over this past year. I'm all smiles. Take one and pass them along.

All the best, Susan
