I pretty much hate the winter. I spend a good part of my winters longing for summer. But heck, I can’t sit around for four to five months! Besides, the world is pretty after a fresh dusting of snow paired with an interesting sky.
I took my son for a hike in the hills along the shores of Lake Superior on a snowy day. We climbed to the top of Sugarloaf “Mountain” –it’s really just a huge rock– and watched the scattered snow showers float off the big lake. It was a great time to bond and see some neat things.
I almost always bring a camera along on a hike or a road trip. As my boy leaned on the cedar railing and watched the distant snow showers, I snapped the photo below.
Next month ( February, 2013) there will be a multi-artist exhibit called “Winter Charm” sponsored by the Lake Superior Art Association. I need to enter a wintry piece of art. Like I already said, I hate winter. So I don’t paint winter. But I did have some nice memories of a nice little winter hike.
So I did this…
…and I’m entering this. I call it “Boy in the Red Coat”
The Winter Charm exhibit runs during the month of February, 2013 at the Marquette Arts and Culture Center
Hope to see you there!
