I can’t believe it’s been over 4 months since I last posted! What have I been doing with my time you might ask.
A big chunk of it was spent travelling to the US and Canada again . Some highlights were:
…. getting caught in the big Montana snowstorms which was a bit scary for someone who never drives in the snow. It was so beautiful and sureal it almost made up for the giant stress monster sitting in the pit of my stomach as I drove through the horizontal snowstorm.
There were some great moments with wildlife…
and I absolutely soaked up the autumn colours .
Then there was the coast…even the overcast days couldn’t dampen my spirit as we hiked into Shi shi Beach and watched the big waves pounding in along the coast.
I managed to get some painting in as well…my favourite time was in the misty rain at Heather Meadows. The colours seemed to really glow in the overcast conditions. It was cold but so lovely.
After we got home I was straight into an epic round of custom paintings for Christmas gifts which took me right up to a week before Christmas. I just finished my last order yesterday and for the first time in 5 months I have no commissions on my waiting list and the amount of time I have for other projects is pretty exciting!!!! Of course it won’t last so I’m planning on making the most of it. I’ve already been out foraging for leaves and doing some pre mordanting of my stash of fabrics ready for a bout of eco printing. I’ll keep you posted….

What a wonderful trip! I hope you paint the Grand Tetons and Heather Meadow in acrylic now that I’m painting in that medium. I especially like the stream throw the wild flowers! Your animal phots are wonderful too!

It really was a wonderful trip and now my commission paintings are slowing down I plan to get some acrylic and pastel paintings done. My husband loves the Tetons so that might be a little birthday surprise for him!
Gosh – how beautiful! You certainly made the most of your time.
..and I forgot to put in the desert areas of Utah which are some of my fave US destinations.
The great thing about a post is you can always edit it!
