Yakima River 2

This is the second of two watercolors I made of the Yakima River. This one is one cold press papaer.

Yakima River 1

We had some free time this afternoon, so I hiked down to the Yakima River that runs near the lodge. I spent a couple of very pleasant hours making this watercolor and another one like it. The sun came out from time to time and warmed me up. This watercolor is in my journal and hot press watercolor paper.

Suncadia Lodge

While we were on a break this morning, I made this watercolor of the Lodge at Suncadia.

Trees at Suncadia

Before breakfast this morning, I made a sketch of some trees on the slope below the lodge. There were snowflakes falling!

Clergy Conference

I'm attending the annual clergy conference at Suncadia Resort near Cle Elum. It's a lot of fun to get away from the usual grind and see old friends and meet new friends. This year our Canadian colleagues from the Diocese of New Westminster, BC, have joined us, and I've go to know a little about the Anglican Church of Canada.
