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!
WOW, Susan, what wonderful photographs! They belong in a tourist brochure!ReplyDelete
The English weather is crazy: after the wettest year on record, instead of wind and snow we are caught in a south easterly wind bringing warm air up from the Sahara Desert.
My new camera has a tendency to take great shots, John - I am pleased! We are just coming out of a 10 day stretch of a deep freeze - the kind that makes my teeth chatter even when dressed in innumerable layers. This winter is showing me what its really like to live on the side of a mountain in the Sierra Nevada foothills. I am just now learning to acclimate! Sounds like a touch of Spring for you!Delete
Such beautiful photo's!ReplyDelete
Let's hop for a very creative New-Year! :0)
Yes, that is a wonderful goal for this brand new year!Delete
Absolutely breathtaking! Looking forward to your paintings in 2013!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Hilda - I am looking forward to seeing what 2013 holds as well. I feel like the sky is the limit for us!Delete
What glorious scenes, Susan!ReplyDelete
I spent the day just drinking in the beauty through my senses!!Delete
Love the trip down memory lane. My brother in law has a lovely place in Lake Tahoe and we have many great times to remember. We now choose to go in the summer - do not ski.ReplyDelete
Hope you will manage to keep your resolution to paint more, Susan because I love your work.
Happy Painting and creative new year!
This was the first time we went during the winter. I was impressed that the roads were completely clear and there were no issues with the drive. Happy painting to your too, Julie!Delete
