Some Recent Artwork

Ralph and I are sick at home the last few days... one of the downsides of being a new teacher is that you get to catch everything goes around the school.  Luckily for Ralph his immunity will be built up too.  So I decided to post some of my recent artwork, most of these have been given as gifts to all my wonderful Dad's but I was hoping by posting this I will be inspired to actually paint more, if only I had lots of time and inspiration.  Most of these are inspired by special places, Lake Powell, Capitol Reef, and Toquerville.  The barn painting is of the Toquerville barn built by Scott's grandfather.

Bye Bye Star Valley Cabin

I ditched Ralph last weekend and went up to our Star Valley Cabin with my fam for the last time ever.  We are selling our cabin which is hard we've had so many wonderful memories there.  But we had a great time this weekend, extreme sledding, cross-country skiing, reading, snuggled up with hot cocoa and a warm fire.  More than anything it was great to get away from the inversion in the salt lake valley, yuck!

sledding with the sistahs!
