The Seasonals Series
Photograph ~ Daniel Krucoff

At least my glass thinks it is spring even if our weather doesn't. I have photos to share of our blast of winter from this past Friday, April 23.

This bowl is a combination of Bullseye opals and translucent glasses. All shades of green. I wanted to have some of that beautiful light green you see as trees start to bud and young leaves begin to emerge. I opted for making this bowl 3/8" thick rather than the 1/2" I usually do as I wanted to add a little bit lighter weight bowl to the Seasonals. I truly can't resist making thicker bowls, but it is fun to go for ones like this too.

While I continue to look forward to the arrival of spring at our elevation (we're at approximately 7,500'), I know it will be a bit longer. This was clearly demonstrated this past Friday with quite the snow storm.
Drifts anyone?

This was the view out our back door at basset level. Dan cleared a path for them so they could venture out to the back yard. Once he did that, they had a blast playing in this new snow.

We want out!

Bueller (on the left) & Nocturne watched Dan through the doggy door. They do know better, but thought they could both go through the door at the same time. Silly bassets!


Nocturne and Newton are happy now that they can play in the snow.

Thank goodness for snow blowers!

Friday afternoon, Dan is removing the 3+ foot drift from our driveway as I had to get into the Springs to deliver glass work for a show that opens on Friday, April 30th. Our snow fences, in the background of this shot, did their job again! Silly us, we were thinking we would take them down this weekend. Hmmmm, I think we will wait til the middle of May now.

Both Friday and Saturday were quite the interesting weather days. Spring in the Rockies!

As I said in the beginning of this post, at least my glass thinks it's Spring.

Until next time, aspire to be more as and artist and a person.

Love this weather! We did not get any snow over here! Just rain!

You are lucky Pam! I think we would fair better if we lived at a bit lower elevation.

Beautiful bowl and yes, perfect for spring. However, I'm sorry to hear your spring has not sprung yet!
Kristin :)

Kathleen Krucoff said...

Thanks Kristin. I think I'm overly anxious for will arrive.

What a great post, Kathleen! Your Spring design is gorgeous. I love the light green - just like the new leaves. That picture of your dogs both trying to get out the door at the same time made me laugh. Hoping spring comes your way soon!

I love this- what a glorious green! I can't believe you still have snow, though. Bring on the spring!

Yay! More water for Lake Mead! :-)

"Spring" is gorgeous. I think it is my new favorite of your bowls. I notice you're on a green trend here with the bowl and with your new stones. It seems obvious to me that you need Springtime - and right now...

Hi Janelle! Happy to provide some humor courtesy of the bassets and I'm glad you like my bowl! Thanks.

Thanks Sharmon. I'm enjoying green these is time for spring.

Yes Don our snow will provide LOTS of water! :) I'm glad you like Spring. I'm thinking I will do a similar one that is all transparents so the light can shine through the entire bowl. I am sooooooo ready for spring. Thanks!
