I made my annual trek to Boise to visit my BFF Susan! We hiked and did art projects, met with friends, went out for sushi (yum!), shopped and did I mention Hiking? Well in all we hiked about 25 miles in the week. The First hike was up Bob's trail, schlepping all our rain gear, just in case, (the humor of the Gods would be not to bring the gear and it would pour, bring the gear and sunny Sky), It did snow just as we got back to the house, very nice! We hiked Polecat Gulch twice, the second time going the full outer loop for 5.75 miles. Then we hiked Upper Hulls Gulch for 6.75 miles.
We did watercolor monotypes, this was new to me and very fun, see my efforts below. Also I wanted to learn to use Acrylic modeling paste so we had fun with that. I tried my hand at lynocut printing, hand registering each plate and using a Baren to make the print. We had a wonderful time. And as always the time goes by to fast then I have to go home!
