Commitment: the state of being emotionally impelled to do something. My commitment is to making art, loving life and doing well.

Daily Artworks... my continuing challenge for 2015: Observe and record. Record and observe. And stretch - s-t-r-e-t-c-h - myself.
What will I discover?

Glaciers are rivers of ice and snow that work their way down to the sea. Glaciers remain frozen from one winter to the next.

...behind a cliff.   

A cirque is the rounded out hollow at the end of a mountain valley, which has been scooped out by the erosion of glaciers and meltwater streams.
