Waterways Project: Spring Escape to Zion
Craig had a brilliant idea to have a little spring break fling up at Zion this week. We happily settled into our lake view room at off season rates and soaked up the only 2 sunny, warm days this week. We all feel restored!
Before we left town, I made a small concertina sketchbook with hot press wc paper. I had 9 x 2 sides and made an agreement with myself to fill it up. Since I walked every afternoon with my nerdy stool and water color kit, this was a delightful challenge. The format was 6" x 6" and I really liked the size. The concertina format however, blew apart in heavy winds. I think I'd rather use a bound book for out door work next time. I also forgot to bring my tiny travel hair spray bottle. (To spray my graphite drawings...not my hair. It makes a pretty good fixative.)
