The wind here in Alberta's windy city has wiped me out while watching my son tryout for the Alberta Summer Games football team for our zone. I met a really friendly football mom and had a great time meeting her. Thank goodness for winter coats and warm fuzzy blankets... Burr! I wonder, if the university would take down the flags would it seem less windy? Out of sight, out of mind?
Along with painting and photography, I also find drawing with pen and ink to be relaxing.
Good night, I think I will further relax by playing some tunes on my Ipad and reading my new Mary Higgins Clark novel called "The Lost Years". That is if I can keep my eyes open long enough. Tomorrow I will go to Chapters to see what new art books I can purchase, yipee, and Ten Thousand Villages to find Tibetan hand chimes...they chime for what seems like forever... How positively relaxing! Ommmmmm...
|The Elbow Tree|
I call this the "Elbow Tree" because of the way the one branch bends as if leaning on the prairie sky. I find pointillism so relaxing, I can do it forever. The trees down at Police Point Park continue to inspire me through the seasons.
