The related tangents about artwork

Lately I've been trying to make homemade DVDs of all the footage we've had going places. One reason I am doing this is so they don't get lost or erased or in the worst case scenario a house fire. I also have been wanting to do this to all our old photographs (not that we have many)

Anyway, I was walking past a small painting of a steam boat in a storm that was painted by Opa when another idea came to me. This is the only painting that I have from Opa and I am very grateful that I even have it. My thought was to make a copy of it for the same reasons.
Then I thought maybe I could find out how to make copies of all the paintings that Opa and dad made. I am still researching on how and where to do this.

Susie always tells me how great it would be to have some artwork from Dad. We now have two, one from the reunion and the other from Christmas. If this vision ever happens all of Opa's and Dad's descendants could have not only one piece of artwork but all of them. Don't think I am having those greedy eyes but it would truly be something that could enrich a home and extend a memory or two.

I'll let you know what I come up with.

Also I know dad has been playing with an idea in his head for quite some time to produce and sell his artwork. I found this interesting site that might be helpful.

These past few days Jake and I were able to go up to the Cabin in Payson! We left on New Years Day and came back yesterday. It was a nice vacation. We took up Jakes brother and all of his friends, there were 10 of us total. It was definantly an experience cooking and making dinner for 8 teenagers! It gave me the practice for a large family one day.
We got to the cabin around 4:00 in the afternoon on January 1st, I drove up all the way for the first time! We didnt do much the first day but un pack and shop for the food. We watched a movie that night. The next day we went on a hike behind the cabin, it was not to cold at all, the weather was very nice. We found bones of elk and the boys thought it was the coolest thing ever, me not so much! We then went back to the cabin for some lunch and left for the snow after. It was not snowing in Payson, however just 20 more minutes up the mountain there was a foot of snow that had fallen! We had so much fun runing around and having a snowball fight! I didnt get to close to the ones throwing the most snowballs, I got hit in the face pretty hard last time, not to mention any names.... Jake!
We left later in the morning the next day. We all had a wonderful time, including my dogs! Now its bck to another wonderful work week! I cant wait to go back to Payson again soon!
We only took a little bit of video while we were out there, you loose all sense of technology while you are away from it all! I will put up pics the next time we go! Hopefully sooner than later! Happy New Year everyone!
