catching up

we had a great weekend in sun valley with friends

it was beautiful and snowy and really felt like christmas

and the lodge has wonderful heated outdoor pools which are a great treat after skiing

my camera started acting up, so i can't share photos of the swans or the beautiful decorations, but it was just gorgeous. we got to watch sun valley serenade, which plays on a continuous loop on one of the channels in the lodge, ate well & had a fun day skiing.

back today & a little studio time. i made some plaster of paris to experiment with. on the left it's on a board and on the right spread on burlap, so i can crack it, then mount on wood. both have some gesso on them. looking at the monochromatic landscape today punctuated with willow or red twig dogwood gave me some ideas on where to go with these.

did some work on this- another 6x6- which is how many inches i still need new for next month at the gallery-

and mounted this piece- a cyanotype with colored pencil- and will paint in around the background.

short work week- we have thursday & friday off- looking forward to studio time, at least on thursday-
