The first time I saw Sarah Minkiewicz-Breunig’s Vixen, there was something about her expression and posture that reminded me of my own spunky little mare. We were fortunate enough to get snow over Christmas and I was able to take a few shots of Sprinkles playing in it. The above picture reminded me very much of the pose on Vixen. Perhaps Vixen is tossing up her tail after dodging a few snowballs thrown in her direction. That was what Sprinkles was doing with my husband – or at least what she was doing before she decided to steal the snowballs and eat them.
That was a few weeks ago, and today we are snowed in once again. It’s a good day to work on reorganizing the studio, since potential power outages make me leery of throwing anything valuable in the kiln. (I always worry about color loss when refiring things.) When vital tools – and their duplicates, purchased during previous periods of hiding – go missing, it’s time to impose some kind of order on things.
In the meantime, I hope my fellow southerners are enjoying our unusually snowy winter. It’s a good opportunity to spend time in a studio – even if it’s only cleaning one.
