New Project on WC

I signed up for a new ATC project called Spring Fling on WC. It should be fun. Especially as I have taken so many flower pictures lately. And I will probably visit my mom next week to get photos of flowers at her place again next Wednesday. I won't be going with the art group and that will give me an outing.

Here are some photos of the Wind Wolves Preserve. We parked just outside the area where we would have had to have an escort to and from. That uses up too much time. You can walk or hike just about anywhere, but they want to make sure you don't drive where you aren't allowed. So I gave my aching ankle a terrible workout yesterday. In the photo of the mountains, you will notice the little patches of snow still on top even tho I was standing in the hot sun with a breeze blowing. It was very warm in the sun and pretty chilly in the shade when the wind blew. You can click the photos to see larger versions.

Today I went to Aaron Bros and purchased mats and frames for the two pictures I did of Patriotic Art. Purchasing those items gives me the ouch feeling. I have about a week to see if I can get another one finished.

Way too much walking in the last two days. I am on a single crutch tonight. I will have to take it easy for the next couple of days. Oh well I guess the housework (and dishes) will just have to wait.

This looks like a wonderful area to sketch & paint, but a lot of walking too. Don't overdo it! As my husband says, it always hurts more the next day.

Jeanne, take care of yourself! That's an order.

The photos are beautiful, a real abstract look to the mountains. Nice job.
