Week 8 of colour me positive
Not really a painting, mixed media I suppose. The title of this days page was fearless and we had to cut out our words. I wasnt sure I could sketch a skier so I went to some old ski magazines, would you believe 1982! and having drawn in and painted my mountain and then used a silver spray and a stencil, which doesnt really show I found an extreme shot and cut it out. As an ex skier, who loved black runs I had to overcome my fear of heights. Looking back we had a ball but perhaps my replacement parts (knee and shoulder) are due to those carefree days. Oh we did have fun, and the runs in Austria,Switzerland and New Zealand as well as the early days here in Australia were challenging but memorable. Great to look back on.
