View From the Cabin

I spent most of last week at my in-laws' cabin. All of the Utah fam came up to celebrate New Year's, and I (of course) brought my sketching stuff. This watercolor is based on a view from one of the cabin's windows.

On Friday, my wife sent me snowshoeing into the woods. (You rock, Janae!) So I 'shoed down to a nearby stream, sat in a snow drift, and painted. Snowshoeing is awesome. The only skill required is ambulation*, and you can literally walk on water. Sadly, although the hike was great, none of my paintings turned out, so you don't get to see them.

Dry your eyes, though. I'll be posting lots of good stuff shortly.

* I only used that word because I didn't want to say "walking" and then "walk on water". It sounded weird. Not that "ambulation" doesn't have its own problems. Like the fact that no one uses it.

I love it. We need to frame it for the cabin. My parents would love it!
