My Own Personal New Meadows Art Retreat. here in Idaho. Wow I am super luck to have such great friend who have such a wonderful location for a month long art retreat. They have such a fantastic location. I am getting real spoiled. a 3 car garage for my encaustic studio. and a huge craft room for  my art projects with 2 tables. I am getting my exercise daily by taking the two dogs on walks in the woods.

I am putting encaustic gesso onto the 8″ x 8″ panels for the Little Big Show that is coming up this August in Baker City OR. I better get to it now while I have the time. Because when I get home I am closing on our house and will be looking for a new location to create and live.

Gold Fork Hot Springs, Donnelley, ID

Off the grid , with a yurt for a dressing rooms,great view, lounge chairs and umbrellas, outdoor handicap bathrooms and a large chess set . It can get busy during the summer months but one of my favorites especially in the spring, fall and winter months.

Burgdorf Hot Springs 30 miles north of McCall, ID

This a remote off the grid  large main  building  with many outbuildings, cabins to rent. you can attend this all year. The road is closed in the winter except by snow mobile, the road is  almost all paved except the last 2 mile of is dirt road. Beautiful drive and setting. This hot springs is my favorite and well worth the drive.
