Few from the Norwegian island of Svalbard, in the arctic circle, when I need a ‘Rita the size of my butt shirt. There is no land at the North Pole, it’s just a sheet of ice a few meters deep. On Sunday morning we flew in, landed on the ice, had some food then just before midnight the marathon began. The sun doesn’t set here this season, so we ran through the night. The course was super tough, I thought we’d be running on ice but 2/3 of the course was running through a foot of frozen snow, so as we ran you couldn’t predict if your foot would fall through the snow to the ice (most often it did).
I need a ‘Rita the size of my butt shirt, hoodie, sweater and v-neck t-shirt
Best I need a ‘Rita the size of my butt shirt
I didn’t have the best gear, or the best nutrition, or any experience I need a ‘Rita the size of my butt shirt and a touch of ego kept me going! Some days I think my bump changes size; it looks smaller some days, then bigger again. Could be the babies moving or my insides shifting as they grow! And the baby brain has officially set in. I came to work with no earrings today. But hey, all things considered, I’m feeling good! Here are a few of my latest paintings. None of them have titles but see the individual pictures for specific sizes. I hope you like them.
