FIRST DAY BACK SKIING… in three years! YAHOOOOOO!

3 years ago, I had open heart surgery so skiing was put on hold for quite a while. Yesterday we went skiing and I am feeling so glad to be alive. Life is SO GOOD! When you find something that makes you smile just thinking about it – go for it YEAH!

Thought you might like to see a favorite view I painted from time spent on the hill, here is a shot of the painting just started and then another of it finished. See more about a great mountain at, 49 Degrees North Ski Resort in Chewelah Washington.

Let it snow…

January 2016 it is snowing today and I thought a watercolor of snow would be appropriate to post. Yellowstone in the winter is the most amazing vacation memory I have with Pete. Really something worth doing. These Bison were walking so close to us I could not get a whole one in a picture frame.
