|No lines at the ski lift!|
|Hot chocolate by the roaring outdoor fireplace.|
|Icicles at least 3 feet long!|
|Large boats on Lake Tahoe shrink wrapped for the winter.|
|View from Mount Rose over Lake Tahoe looking south.|
|Sunset over the lake. It was not quite frozen but the water was stiff with the cold. It was 23 degrees F when I took this photo.|
I normally do not make resolutions for the new year but I do hope to be more rigorous in my approach to painting this year - more disciplined. I hope to begin the year with life drawing sessions and long days at the easel. I can't wait to see what surprises and delights 2013 holds! A happy, prosperous, healthy and creative New Year is wished for all!
