Snow days in Kentucky

It's not usual that we see a lot of snow down here in Kentucky. Winters tend to be pretty mild. There was a point this year where I wondered if my son would get to see any accumulation at all and then all of the sudden snowpocalypse was upon us. 
Let me give you an example of normal vs.  this last week. 
This is normal. You can even still see the grass. 
This is not so normal. Over 8" in one night is pretty crazy around here! 
Needless to say the little one loved it, the dogs loved it, and we all had a good romp in the snow. 
By the way snow is beautiful. You don't really get much better than freshly fallen snow that hasn't been touched yet. Love. 
All was fun and games until the snow refused to go anywhere for a week and then it immediately rained and turned everything into slush and ice. 
Ugh. So of course everyone was stuck inside for awhile. I spent half a week snowed in at my mothers house....that's a party let me tell ya. 
I haven't been able to get much headway on a lot of projects but here's my latest that I'm currently working on finishing. 
I took a spin off wolf in sheeps clothing and changed it to sheep in wolf's clothing. That's how I feel some days. 
It's a work in progress, but I'm liking the direction. I'll be sure to update when finished, I'm sure I'll have plenty of time with all this funky weather. 
Until next time. 

Forgive me twice?

I have to apologize...again.
I want this to be the last time.
For realisies.
I haven't made a post in quite awhile, and only here recently got back into the swing of things.
It wasn't you, it was me.
I still love you, I still love art, I still love Freedom Runs. So. So. Much.
Let me come back?
I went through a tough time, some big changes occurred in my life, and I handled them poorly.
I couldn't write, I didn't care about painting, I almost gave up on Freedom Runs for a second time.
But then I didn't. Life MOVED ON. I kept going. I was ok.
I picked my brush back up, and loved what came out of it. I still had it. I had it better than I've had it before. I practiced calling myself an artist. I stopped comparing my artwork to those I deemed better than I. And it was amazing.
I painted what I wanted to paint. I found my niche. I found myself.
So many I's. Apologies. I think that's a no-no.
We have a lot of catching up to do, you and I. So many pictures have formed since I left you. I got back on social media, and have been working on my website! 
You can view it here:
Super long and drawn out, but I'm working on the whole domain issue. In the meantime....just click on the link and bookmark it ;)
I'll give you a preview of what I've done. The rest will come in separate posts, because, I promise to write to you, at least once a week. Pinky promise. Kiss and all.
Let me know what you think of the new works. Here are the first few I created. 
They were inspired from my previous wild in color doings, the wolf and the lion. 
The series grew and I'm loving every brushstroke. 
I also apparently went through a purple phase. Shhhhh. 
Until next time, I leave you with fabulous colorful circusy animals.
