I missed posting last week! I was working on a painting of two of my granddaughters and wasn’t happy with it. So I put it aside for a while and turned to an unfinished work I had begun last summer while I was at Art Walk. I re-worked it and finished it, and here it is – a sweet reminder of summer and sun and warmth and smiling faces – and great art on the sidewalks of Whyte Avenue!
And in between and during working on the two paintings, I’ve been catching some of the Olympics. I especially love the snowboarding and freestyle ski events – women’s and men’s – and in particular the half pipe and slope style – wow!
I live in a seriously winter city, in what could honestly be called a winter country, but I don’t ski (my husband does) or snowboard (my sons do) but I do love to watch those crazy people doing crazy things on their crazy skis and snowboards. That’s a special kind of insanity! They truly are artists of a different stripe…
Cheers to all the participants in the 2014 Winter Olympics, and congratulations to all the medallists!
