That afternoon hike to a special spot. Anyone else picture the trail as a stream on the walk up? I can see the fish already...holding around every bend and the trees looking at me while I daydream.

Fly Tying Table Top, 30”x30”, Stained Butcher Block with routed forms
I was given a butcher block piece from a kitchen remodel. Reacting to the wood grain I saw the rocks from Boulder canyon in Colorado and routed out a drawing I did. Each rock is a compartment for flies or fly tying materials.

Plein Air Prints Wood & Linoleum Block Prints
Each summer I lead a Designing Outside Studio
in Rocky Mountain National Park. As part of the week long camping and design-making trip the students and I make quick block prints “en plein aire” (or outdoors). Hiking, sketching and reacting to place I carry a block, some carving tools, a few inks and some paper and make some prints in situ on a rock, bench, picnic table or just off the trail.
