Mornings in the Mountains

When it snows it quiets down. It literally becomes quiet as the snow absorbs all sound. I love the hikes on those pristine mornings when it is cold, crisp, and quiet. This is the back of Sugar Bowl ~ you can see the ski runs in the upper right of this image. Totally peaceful out…

January Days

January days are flying by. Hope you are settling into the New Year! I kicked off the year by taking an oil painting workshop with Kelli Folsom. It was a great four days of easel time. Watching her mix paint, seeing how she handles the brush, getting a feel for all that thick, juicy paint…

    Karen, Craig Strong has also offered to give me a tour as I usually buy my lenses direct from his place of business. I wonder if we could arrange a field trip for the whole workshop attendees?ReplyCancel

      • Gretchen

        Oh yes, I did not mean during the workshop. We want to spend every minute with you, learning.ReplyCancel

        • KarenBurns

          OK, 🙂 We will see what we can do, Gretchen! And thank you for passing the word on to Tricia!ReplyCancel
