this weekend pam, sister, and i kick off our 7th annual art retreat in the desert. this just so happens to coincide with a massive teachers’ strike and a superstorm dumping much needed water across los angeles.
when the rains started i got the old nikon out of storage and took a few photos.
ever since returning from venice a few weeks ago i’ve been dreaming of winter storms and a respite from the sun. now it’s here and i’m ever so pleased.
the drive out to palm springs should be extraordinary with the snow covering the mountains. i’m looking forward to lots of laughing, yacking, and dips in the jacuzzi with pam and carol. an extended period of time to draw & paint in our sketchbooks. it’s exactly what we all need.
i’m crossing my fingers that the strike doesn’t last for more than a couple of weeks, that the government shut down ends, and that life as we know it gets back to some semblance of normality soon.
i hope you’re tucked in somewhere warm and enjoying the new year. keep me posted. i’ll send you a postcard from palm springs via instagram. xo
