In the middle of the night it started to snow and blow...by morning the road was covered and traffic was bogged down. Even some school closings.
I called Jill to tell her not to drive in this weather but she arrived by 7:30. Tried feeding the girls in the run-in by their stalls but that did not work for very long. Ended up putting the hay nets under the shed roof and they stayed out while we cleaned and set up. It was blowing so bad they were put back in a little after 9.
Phoebe and Gucci had a 60 second run and were happy to go back in the house.
Quite a difference from yesterday.
We shoveled the driveway twice...tomorrow it's going to be like an ice skating rink.
All four cats and two dogs were inside most of the day. We all vegged.
The fire felt good.
At three I let the horses back out and picked their stalls. Got everything set up for evening chores and went back in.
Got things ready for dinner. Something different for tonight...my vegetarian friends would be proud!
Red lettuce, pears, dried cranberries and a little extra sharp cheddar cheese.
Tucked the ponies in....and then it was time to eat. Lentils and Bulgur with Caramelized Onions. (Of course I did my version of the recipe)....we loved it. The onions added such flavor.
After a steaming hot shower, we drove to Brockport for an art opening at A Different Path Gallery. Fortunately the roads were in good shape and it stopped snowing.
This show was all about portraits.
I've known Sarah Hart since she was a child...she went through the school system where I taught art. Having spent several years studying in Italy, she uses a very classical approach in all of her work. It was a pleasure to see how she has developed.
(pardon the reflections)
Kathy and Stuart, who own the gallery, have done an amazing job putting in a stairway that leads to their upstairs gallery and studios.
Above is a recent self portrait....and below is Sarah in her Studio tonight.
The downstairs gallery displayed the works of two other artists.
and Jolene Beckman.
All three of these women have distinctive styles. A great show!
There were many familiar faces there....like Miles (who we have known since he was born). You have seen pictures of him before, as he and his band have played gigs in our barn.
If you have never been to A Different Path, I would highly recommend this show as well as paying a visit to the shop...where you can buy my favorite socks.
