it has been a long cold winter...
one of the perks about the month of march
is our winter break and usually some warmer days.
(the warmer days seem to still escape us
….but there is always hope)
as for our winter break it is almost upon us.
this illustration was inspired by my childhood winters in northern ontario.
part of enjoying this time is the activities
it has to offer and of course being able to warm up with a hot drink.
(thanks to my mom, a creamy cup of hot chocolate
was always waiting when we came inside.)
hence this piece is titled
"hot chocolatey days!"
a little nod to those wonderful, snowy childhood days
with my siblings.
but, also to my grade 6 classmates
and our teacher, Mr. Watson
who gave us many memorable field trips in the snow.
very, very sweet and warm memories!
