December 4th Day 11
Rise time 1900 scheduled bedtime 1340
2000 In frustrated acceptance that the alignments (at least of aurora and weather) will be off for a northern lights display I paint the aurora from memory. Then I cover the paintings layer of thick purple grey, just the way the sky is doing right now. Between 2100 and 2200, Josh and I walk about outside while it snows on the hope that the whether might break just for a minute. It doesn't so we do what any grown ups would do in this situation and have snow ball fights, make snow angels and build terrible excuses for snowmen.
The snow gets quite heavy. I decide to put my earlier gouaches out side and let the snow eat into the grey layer on the hope of revealing at least a conceptual glimpse at the Northern Lights.
