It took me a bit of time to get registered, but I'm here now. Hello from Denver!
This is my roommate's dog, Freckles. He has a giant pillow in the living room near to the fireplace. With all the snow we've been having, all of the animals have been especially fond of the fireplace!
I am brand new to watercolors though. I had a brief trial back in the 70s, but haven't really touched them since then. It's nice to have an excuse to get back into another medium.
