Wildlife Art, Tiger



I did say I'd been getting on with my wildlife art! I've been so sorely disappointed with the weather today, we were supposed to suffer heavy snowfall which would have prevented us going to work tomorrow, but I had hoped the very large amount of remaining snow would melt to make our journey into work easier, instead it's the thick compacted snow/ice which is all the way down to the main road. We took all of the dogs down to the road to see if things had improved and although the main road is much better, we still have to fight our way out and take the big dipper ride down the steep track to get out. As a result, I've been sulking, I've updated my website and got on with this tiger painting and moaned and mumbled at myself that tomorrow will be horrendous, wet and cold!

Anyway here is the obligatory snowy picture from today's walk, look at that road!!!



And a little video of my dogs in the snow

I do apologise it's not very interesting but my batteries went flat and I did cuss a bit too!!!

Your tiger is looking seriously good Karie Ann! And yes, that's how I remember snow scenes - black and white! Hope Cyril is ok in all that.

Hi Dors, yes the dogs just love the snow, each does something dofferent, the little terrier races around at top speed only indered when the snow is deeper than she is tall, the spaniel rolls in it and Willow picks up lumps and throws them up in the air!
