You know why I love opening day in Fernie? It’s not what you might expect. Or maybe you know me well enough now to know exactly why I love opening day. Opening day means the start of skiing for my husband and kids…which leaves time for me to paint! YES! It was such a beautiful opening weekend, too. My family had a wonderful time at the hill and I painted until they came home hungry and tired legged. It was a wonderful weekend. It was a particularly good weekend for painting. I also attended a paint and sip type night with Angela Morgan and a group of amazing, supportive women. It was a night of wine, food and also fundraising for Angela’s daughter who wants to build houses in El Salvador. I painted an Angela Morgan type painting in oils, which is a first for me, in two ways. It was a steep learning curve but I embraced my novice inferiority feelings and dove in. Hooray for opening day!

Today is Derby day. It’s a pretty big deal for the people of Fernie and for the Fernie Lions Club. “All the money raised goes to help kids, seniors and the handicapped in the Elk Valley, so it’s a great way to give to charity and have fun at the same time.” says the Fernie Lions Demo Derby Public Group on Facebook.
If you’re not already there, it’s going on until 4pm.
