I'm getting paid to do this

My wish came true and we got our snow day today. The phone rings at 5:30 and I answer to the beautiful sound of the Superintendent's robo-call, telling us schools are closed for inclement weather.  What this means for me?  A paid day off to do nothing but make art.

I'm catching up on my composition class.  Here's my second shape collage for lesson one:
I've read the handout and watched the video for lesson two and I've prepared 5 backgrounds and started all these little color studies:
On a day like today even snow-blowing is relatively pleasant, because at least I'm getting paid for it.
