Hey everyone! Last spring when I flew to Chile, I did a bit of painting. Obviously the inspiration is the river. The Futaleufu and town of Pichilemu were great subjects because of their beauty and complexity. Endless ideas came from my stay. Here's some of the art I did while in Chile:

Here's a couple pieces I did while in New Zealand... The first I did while in Murchason...there were these sweet-as palm trees...just love em. :) The second I painted while at the River Valley Lodge on the Rangitiki. I gave the original to an awesome Kiwi girl named Valerie who works at the lodge...the painting might even be hanging up in the lodge right now :). I liked it so much, I painted a copy for myself.

I must say I liked the original much better but hey, I will always remember the waterfall now :)

And...here is some work I just did...
The first was inspired by surfing in New Zealand and the second...well it's my perrito Pepper...AKA "Wiggles" cuz her booty is always wagging :)! Yes she is a happy girl :D






AHHH Im so ready to go boat! Unfortunately I will have to settle for pool and weight room sessions for now...atleast for one more week! :) YAY! Hope everyone is having a great winter and doing lots of paddling! Stay tuned for more posts from this winter :)!

Until later, this is Christina Russell off to work out!!!
