buried alive

It snowed most of the weekend. Then it melted for a few days and now it's snowing again. March is making up for what we didn't get in February. I love it! It's not cold, I don't really have to venture very far in little car, I don't mind shoveling and Gershwin rolls in the fresh powder every chance he can get. The roads are not the best right now and it makes me a bit sad as I procured some delicious stouts to enjoy this eve while I hunker down and work on things....but I grabbed the wrong bag and brought it home, so I need to go out again to get my beers. Sigh. No matter though...I also need ingredients for chicken stew. I will just be extra cautious when I venture out again. Many people are sick of the snow, especially because it is (technically) the second day of spring. I don't really see the point in being upset though. We are on the downhill slide toward warmer weather. This won't last. And we don't get too many snow days in March at any rate. I'm drinking in the quiet of this afternoon. Not actually drinking...yet.

In continued celebration of the lovely snow, I finished two more snowy pieces:

a572_pines2

'pines II' (highlands area, around ada blvd. edmonton)

acrylic on canvas, 8" x 10"

$90

a573_edmontonalleyway1

'edmonton alley way II' (parkallen area)

acrylic on canvas, 8" x 10"

$90

I think that's it for winter themed pieces for now. Maybe not. It's odd switching between winter and summer themed projects these last couple of days. It seems like winter might never go away. I'd be ok with that, but it would mean acquiring some mad winter camping skills and investing in a dog sled or some snowshoes to get around a bit quicker in all this. Those might not be bad skills to learn anyway.

Stay safe. Stay occupied.
