Day 14 – Hot Springs National Park

July 15, 2017 Hot Springs National Park Artist-in-Residence

Beginning my drive back home today and I am so grateful to Hot Springs National Park and all the wonderful people there. It was an amazing experience. I learned so much about the park and nature. I also grew a lot as an artist. I had time to devote to painting and my process. Being an AIR was an amazing experience! Thank you, thank you.
