A New Year

I had a wonderful Holiday season. We spent time in Alaska with our daughter, her soon to be hubby and our son. A true family affair.
My husband and i have been to Anchorage quite a few times since our daughter has lived there the past 7 years, but this was the first year our son came along.
If you have never been to Alaska you must treat yourself to this state, it is an incredible state. the mountains are like none you have ever seen and then the light. Alaska has a light that is unique to Alaska. the daylight in Dec. usually starts about 10am and then it dims around 4pm. yet you always seem to have this glow. some nights there is a pink glow at twilight and sometimes it is almost orange. then you will have a purple blue. it truly made me want to paint again just to try and capture that color.
 i took this picture from my daughters front porch. the color took my breath away. Alaska can do that, easily.

and then you have the blue and of course the picture just does not do it justice. the mountains are in your face from the moment you arrive.

we arrived early and  rented a car then off we went to snowboard ( or my son and soon to be son-in-law did, i took pictures) at Aleyeska at Gridwood,Alaska.
looking down on Gridwood from Aleyeska,  just another view of Alaska and we have 9 more days to go.

I hope everyone had a great Holiday Season
and I hope this New Year brings us all closer to Peace throughout the world.
keep dropping by i have plans to have a free give away this year.
it will be my first ever and i think it is about time.
stay creative
