Arting for 365 Day 180: Weavings

Day 180 (10/25/12):  WovenGoal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

Just as quickly as the clouds rolled in and snow fell, blue skies appeared and the snow melted away. The morning began with 4 degree weather and by afternoon it was 40.

I am teased, from time to time, about my fascination with weather. But with such drastic changes, how can one not be? Here is to mother nature and all the surprises she has in store.

Arting for 365 Day 179: Robin Come Winter

Day 179 (10/24/12): Robin Come Winter

Colorado received her first real dose of snow yesterday. It was, by no means a blizzard, nor will the skis even be coming out,  but it did make me feel as though winter is knocking on our doorstep.

For some reason after seeing this weather I began to think about birds – American robins in particular. This type of robin hangs around through the winter (although perhaps not at Crested Butte altitude) and I wondered, how they were they feeling about this snow? Had the copper breasted little guys prepped their winter huts? Were they cozied up, and as excited about the prospect of some winter weather as I am? One can only hope.
