Dramatic Scenery

We have returned from a fantastic week away in Tignes, France.  The order of the day was skiing, but I managed to take an afternoon off and take some photos.  I love the snow; especially for the dramatic landscape it provides.  There is a wealth of character in the Mountains.  Light and dark tones create depth and interest.  We had brilliant sunshine all week and as we were well into the ski season, the snow was beginning to melt away to reveal it's treasures.  At 3350m, this bird was definitely flying high!

Art Class

My art teacher introduced me to some new artists today, one of which was Ethel Gabain.  She was one of the few artists of her time able to live on the sale of her lithographs.  Here is some of her work.





I think I shall have to spend some time researching her.
