After spending a couple years designing textiles for my own home, I’ve decided to start a fabric shop. I’m in the process of completing a spring collection, so stay tuned for more information and visit my website (www.aliceashe.com) to check it out.
In March, my husband, some friends and I traveled to Jackson Hole, WY for some spring snowboarding. This is a snapshot of our wonderful week:
1. One the best parts of visiting Jackson Hole is landing at the airport alongside the Teton Mountains. The view is spectacular.
2. Archways of elk antlers greet you outside the airport. They can also be found in the town square alongside other tasteful Western decor.
3. Katie and I spent the first sunny day walking around Teton Village.
4. We stumbled upon a pen of large horses and decided to say hello. They were perfect subjects against the mountainous backdrop.
5. We had one cloudy and one gorgeous day on the slopes. It made for some nice snow and scenic views.
6. The valley from the mountain is quite a sight. The mountain on the left is said to be Sleeping Indian Mountain as the peak resembles an Indian Chief laid to rest with a headress of trees and his arms crossed at his chest.
A few weeks ago we stopped by the Smithsonian American Art Museum to see Annie Leibovitz’s Pilgrimage exhibit. Though a definite change from her standard portraiture, the images were stunning. Her colors are rich and captivating, even with a subject as simple as leaves from John Muir’s collection of botanical specimen.
My obvious favorites were the photos taken at Georgia O’Keefe’s home and museum in Santa Fe. If I had to chose one, it would be the collection of O’Keefe’s homemade pastels as it is a colorful glimpse into the artist’s world.
