"Close to Home" Giggles

This is my first post on Lynns wonderful new blog, I usually blog weekly  as Giggles at Happy Tiler.  I'm very excited to be a part of such a talented eclectic group of artist! Thank you Lynn for including me!

Canadians love their Hockey! Even if  you're not a regular fan when your Olympic team is playing for gold  you get on the band wagon and cheer!  So Sunday at four thirty in the morning our family did just that! To celebrate our gold medal win my adult Children went outside our front door and created a very patriotic snowman!! It's rare to win gold, but it's also rare to see snow for more than a few days during winter in Southern British Columbia.....I decided to commemorate the moment by painting our snowman!



  1. Hi Glggles, good to see you here. Your snowman certainly was patriotic, love your painting to remember him.

  2. Welcome!!! Congratulations on the win. This came out really nice. Glad you commemorated him.

  3. So good to see you here! Your snowman looks so happy about the win. Congrats to Canada.

  4. Yay I met you over here! I'm only visiting to see, what is going on. Don't have much time at the moment for blogging :(
    So good to see you post here! :-) And a lovely snowman!
    Hugs Ilona
