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.
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.
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!
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.
