I attended the Idaho Conservation League's "Wild Idaho" this year it is always held at the Redfish Lake Lodge. Each year they host panels that talk about environmental issues and speakers that give presentations on different species or landscapes. I tend to skip the field trips to go out and paint. If the weather is good, and this past weekend it was, I go out to paint. I chose this time to drive out to the Salmon River along the road to Alturas Lake, I spent an afternoon painting a view of the river. Below is a picture of my painting easel that I built after several incarnations with my painting mounted on it. I have included several views of it so you can see how it works.
