I tried to meet with the plein air painting group but obviously missed them. Oh well, there is always next week. Since I was in a hurry, because I had an important sushi date with my friend Yuki, (mm mmm sushi) I was only able to put together this little piece. I painted it from the sledding hill at Balto Seppala park in Turnagain. This hill has many important memories for me. It is more than simply the highest place in the neighborhood, it is where I learned to downhill ski, hung out for bicycle jousting, (don’t even ask) and I even proposed to Maria on this very spot. So I hope it is as fun for you to look at this painting as it was for me to paint.
