Loose Ends, Closets and Floors
So, no new painting today...but a few fun pics of our hike in the foothills yesterday. We live not far from the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater near Morrison Colorado...and although we didn't hike in that area there were a few red rocks here and there which always amaze me as they look like they just got squeezed upwards...but only made it to the slant...Interesting!
The hills and foothills from our hike were so interesting...more pinion pines than the ones near our house...which always remind me of the landscapes of Grant Woods. And, yes...we did run in to some evidence of animals...mountain lion tracks (though not a big one)...and a ton of bear fur! I guess he just came down and rolled around on the ground to get rid of his winter coat?? I don't know, but it was a bit creepy!
I'm investing in a table saw so I can make my own cradles for my MDF panel collages and paintings...So that is on the list for pick up today as well...I made a cradle (well, my husband did the sawing) by hand yesterday for the Aspen Lights and Shadows collage and it turned out beautifully, but took way too long and I couldn't saw the wood by hand myself...thus the need for the electric version of my hubby! He is always so good to make what I need, but I feel bad for him knowing the number of cradles I will be making this summer...so off to Home Depot for me! FUN...a new tool!!
Here's hoping you all have a great day of CREATING!!
