I finally did it! I wanted to paint a little girl form Niger ever since I came back from there. There is a tender spot in my heart just for the people I met in Niger! It’s as though yesterday that I visited even though it has been over 5 years. Looking at the little girl, there seems an unspoken understanding that we will see each other again.
While we were trying to paint on location at Lake Edith, the fog was rolling in, I felt the urge to capture the mood, thankful for the camera and a quick sketch. We were in a white out situation five minutes later; snow was coming down sideway! We never thought we could pack up our things that fast! My friends wished we could stay on longer to paint; I’m just thankful that we had that moment and enjoyed it. I guess in real life situation, we can choose to regret the moment come and gone so fast or be thankful that we had the moment!
As we were hiking along the walkway to Johnston Canyon, the surrounding fills every sense of my being – the rocks are spectacular to look at, the sound of the water is alluring and the smell of fresh vegetation is rejuvenating. And this is just a small glimpse of what we will be seeing! I think everyone should make at least a trip to this majestic canyon in his lifetime.
