Winter Color

I promised pictures of Gros Morne in my last post but I didn't go. As you can see we had a lovely winter storm that brought some lovely snow. Now all is right in the world again. I've been thinking I'm going to have to change the name of my blog soon...or else start making work again. Maybe I'll do just that...make new work. :) Stay warm.

At last.

Winter has finally arrived and hopefully she will stick around for awhile. In the meantime I was in St. John's this past week and I visited my old school The Anna Templeton Centre, which is the home of the Textile Studies Program through the College of the North Atlantic. I spent hours working in that printing studio and I was missing being at art school for a few quiet minutes. Tomorrow, weather permitting, I'm off to Woody Point. I don't think I've ever been in Gros Morne National Park in the wintertime so I'll definitely have some photo's to share in the coming days. Really.

What are you changing?

In 2011 I've decided to be more aware of what I eat and maybe even more importantly of where my food comes from and what's going into it before it gets to me. I'm actually looking forward to the challenge of being a Vegetarian but then again it's only January 4th. :) I'm also going to try to read more and I'm starting with Lawrence Hill who I met in Woody Point last summer. When I read the book I hear his voice which is kinda nice. And when I'm not reading and eating I'm walking Blackie....of course! Grand Falls-Windsor has beautiful walking trails with rabbits that you can see, and evidence of beavers that I have yet to see. I guess the chicken wire is meant to discourage them from eating the entire forest!
