A view of the event....
One of my fierce competitors
Oh, that felt good, right after the finish
Waiting for the medals
This one was taken back home, happy!
This race was for a very good cause, the New Mexico Autism Society, their first annual race event. A very pleasant one, beautiful morning. Steve chose not to do it in favor of the Run for the Zoo next weekend.
By the way, I think I was the only "skort" around! I have come to like running in one, very smooth, free running. I read somewhere that some guys really hate to be passed by a skirt! Yeah! I was hoping for 29' (after these long months recovering from injury) and so I was happy with my time of 28'13"!

I could not make any progress on the large painting from Jesse's workshop (utter frustration...I could have screamed...) so I went back to old pieces and reworked that one, what a difference!
The colors of the finished one are softer than shown however.
I went back to look at this picture and noticed that she seems to have a tear ....

It is not as vivid a blue as this. I still need to work on this one a little longer (more work on background and on the right area) and.......done!
Colors are somewhat softer.... The whitish areas above and to the right are actually mostly pale blue with a bit of white.
So I reworked some areas the next morning (April 7) and added some things.....done! I removed the picture posted yesterday and replaced it with this one.
12" x 12" or about 30cms x 30 cms.
Mixed media on board.
Acrylics, oil pastels, collage

It was a hard race in terms of terrain, basically a cross country type.......something I did not expect but I ran well with a time of 30'1". Awards to the first 8 runners so we went back home , no point in waiting in the cold and the wind! This is my first race in 11 months and I am so very happy: thank you Lord!
Next race is May 3rd, "Run For The Zoo", a race I have never missed since I have been racing and one I definitively belong in, as you will, undoubtedly agree....:)
