Standing in the Shade
Happy 2016! I have lots to report. First of all I just spent a wonderful week in Canada with my family, on vacation. We spent a few days in Vancouver (what a beautiful city!) and a couple in Gibsons, a ferry ride away. We went snowshoeing for the first time! At sunset, which was spectacular. And spent New Years Eve at a bonfire/barn dance, Canadian style. Eh? Loads of fun!
Also to report, we have decided to pull our son from his current school and spend some time home schooling. How long will depend on how it goes, but it will change things for me, obviously. I will be painting less. But also we've decided to take advantage of the fact that we're self-employed and travel! We will wait until the weather warms up a bit to take our first trip, but hopefully this will mean more regular plein air for me, in between lessons.
My friend Abby Ryan is giving another INNERnet course starting on Wednesday. So if you are looking to "unplug," check it out, and use this coupon code for 20% off: "carols-blog-follower".
Meanwhile, this painting is from a park in California I visited in 2015.
