It has been a little while since I’ve done a sweeter piece so here we go. Red, pink, sugar, chocolate, and sinister cupids bearing arms are a welcome sight for February. So how do you stay sane this time of year??? John and I have started our Latin food-fest month. This is the time of year where we eat spicy food, over-indulge in Spanish and Argentinian wine, watch shark movies and pretend we are anywhere else but stuck in a cottage that is buried under a mountain of snow.

I tried to get this painting completed before Christmas but just couldn’t pull it together. Was it just me or did this Christmas seem to be on steroids? Normally we have a quiet and small Christmas, but my brother and family were in Ottawa (normally they are in England) and so on Boxing Day I took the train to see them. I think I ate four Christmas dinners, at least two pounds of Christmas cake, and quite possibly a partridge and a pear tree. Needless to say, I am confined to stretchy pants for the next two weeks.
