Last weekend I took a van, a boat and a bus to Holden Village in the Cascade mountains. There I spent a fun-filled weekend with members of my book group. I had hoped to get in a lot of drawing, maybe play with some of my new colored pencils and water colors, instead I spent most of my time playing in the snow. The sky was clear, the sun was warm and really, the best place to be was outside, hiking up and down the trails. The evenings found our group sharing warm conversation over glasses of boxed wine, along with playing several rousing games of Bananagrams. My sketchbook was mostly neglected, but I did manage to dash off a scribble or two.
I hit the ground running upon my return; lots happening at work and at home, but still managed to get a bit of studio time in. I have made one color pass on my new woodcut, (I'm still in love with it) and i will share images of my progress after there is a bit more to show.
According to my computer it's 11:57pm on Saturday. Hooray, I'm getting this post in just under the wire!
PS. Don't forget to spring forward!
