Winter Magic! A new Painting

"Winter Magic"

This is my newest painting that I finished last night!  A magical goddess of winter whipping up some snowy weather.  :)

I love how she turned out!  She's definitely a favorite that I've done in a while.  The tree actually took the longest to do, but in the end it was worth it to add the snow on the branches.  I'd contemplated just leaving them bare, but it really gave it some extra depth.

It's 11 x 14" Watercolor and white gouache.  Prints and the original painting are available on my website HERE

And also an update on my kittens! They are 9 weeks old now and crazy and adorable!!  We've decided to keep all of them.  We've gotten way too attached to them to give them away!  :)  Here are a few more recent pics:
