So far, I am sticking to my weekly posts! Yay me! Well this is a day late, but I blame it on the snow falling yesterday. I started this yesterday morning after my last class of the day. The snow was gracefully falling from the sky. The forecast predicted that Mother Nature had an angrier snowstorm in mind for later in the day with threats of freezing rain. Well, the snow continued to fall in big white shapes all day and we were dismissed early from school. So I put my blog post on hold so that I could enjoy an afternoon of play.
Before the snow storm, I enjoyed a much needed three day weekend. I skied really hard with my River Runners on Saturday and Sunday. We finally got a decent amount of snow; it was much needed on the mountain. Saturday morning we skied at Barker and Spruce. American Express and Right Stuff had some great snow and we carved out some great turns. In the afternoon we traveled over to Jordan and Oz for a few runs on Eurkea, and Rogue Angel.
Sunday morning we skied at Aurora Peak; with a two runs on Vortex and couple runs on Airglow and Black Hole. I was very proud of my River Runners. They will be taller then me pretty soon, but man, they are really good skiers! They make me laugh and push my buttons at the same time.
With all the skiing I have been getting in; I have also been drawing up a storm. Haha! Still trying to stay focused with my creative ideas and manage to get in some creating time every day. It may only be for a few minutes or a couple hours. Here is my latest watercolor drawing. Mostly just a study for a future painting. I actually went back and made the girls dress more orange. There wasn’t much difference between it and her skin. I just didn’t get a chance to re-take the photo.
