Below Johnson Grade

Painted last week with the Plein Air Painters of Idaho.  Nice people to hang out with and good painters too.  While on our painting trek, we discovered places around Hagerman that I had not seen before.  This view looks at Johnson Grade, another semi-secret way to climb out of the canyon.  It is a steep gravel road and an adventure in scenic views.  While painting here we enjoyed the crystal clear water and marsh wildlife along the edges of Billingsley Creek.

Rosie's Riverside Trailer

Spent Tuesday painting with friends at Rosie's new getaway place on the Snake River.  As we wandered the property, I discovered this trailer parked on the river bank.  I had to paint it because it reminded me of the trailer that we had when our girls were little.  It brought back nice memories of camping on the North Fork of Deer Creek near Hailey.  This one is now a permanent resident on the river, and a getaway for Rosie's guests.

Italy Sketchbook




Had a wonderful time in Italy.  It was a busy trip, but I was determined to capture some of the wonderful scenes in my sketchbook.
