Some sketches and a lesson

Keeping up with my everyday sketching pretty much…. This is one of many bags I use to carry sketching materials when I’m out and about.

I did miss two days.  One because when I woke up at 5:30 it was colder than usual and the shower water was warm but not as hot as usual, our boiler motor had died..  The same day dear husband was ill, our grandson was here and I was responsible for a major downtown event that was taking place that evening.  Sketching was the last thing on my mind when I finally had a chance to relax in our warm house (boiler repair done) at 11 that night. The next day I slept late and caught up with all the little things that didn’t get done the day before.

But back to it on Sunday morning during the sermon….

And after church we headed north to ski.  I took along my sketchbook and kept up the rest of the week….

I haven’t scanned yesterdays and todays yet.

The lesson learned…. It doesn’t have anything to do with art, well, maybe the art of skiing.  We were north skiing and it was great skiing in spite of the cold.  No lift lines and a bit of powder over hardpack.  We skied hard all day.  The lesson… when one is a few weeks short of 75 and has skied hard all day, one should not make the last run a black diamond run.  Tired legs, hardpack, a tumble and a binding that didn’t release caused a slight injury, no break but I am hobbling and will be for awhile. Hopefully not too long; we do want to get up there and ski again this winter.

Oh, my! Take care on those slopes. Guess we will see more sketches in the meantime. I like your line work.

Sorry that last run didn't go so well. Be careful! Glad to see you have been keeping up with the sketches. Good for you!
