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.

Lovely hike this morning to Balanced Rock on Sunset Trail. The light was amazing and I loved seeing all the cairns people had made along the trail. More painting and inking in the studio.

Today I ran a watercolor workshop in The Ozark Bathhouse. It was great and we had a lot of families come by and paint. We played with my watercolor pencils, crayons, travel watercolor sets, and my water brush pens. It was great to share with everyone, hear their stories of the park, and paint together. I had hoped we could hike out and create but the weather didn’t cooperate. I also got some more inking done on some of the paintings.

Wonderful time meeting with the geologists this morning as they were testing the springs. They were amazing and I found out so much about the hot springs and the mountains. I also walked around behind the bathhouses on The Grand Promenade and started to ink some of the trail paintings.
