I have been being a tourist this week as we had company. We took a long ride through Glacier National Park and went to Many Glaciers. I had never been on that side of the park and it is really beautiful.
This is a view from the back deck of the lodge there. While we were on the deck, we saw a grizzly bear up on the mountain side. It was a long ways away so I didn’t take a photo but you could see the bear really well through binoculars.
I mainly take photos that look like the one above when I’m in the park. I am always looking at bark, lichens and rock.
There were some interesting dead trees too. 🙂
I finally got all my paints that I had ordered so I finished my color wheels today. I was waiting on primary cyan and primary magenta for this three primary wheel.
I also painted a six primary wheel today too.
Earlier this week, I did a bit of dyeing. My sister wanted to have one of her blouses over dyed. I forgot to take a photo but it turned out well. I had three white shirts that I never seem to wear so I thought I would ice dye them. Because I did the dyeing in a jar, the dye didn’t get all the way through the shirts. I do kind of like how they turned out. I might over dye them but I think I will wait on that right now.
This is my favorite one. It was dyed with black and yellow.
This one is really bright. But I guess I can wear it for Saint Patrick’s Day!
Nice pictures! I love the ice dyed shirts. I have a few I should do that to as well. I tried your ice dyeing on some fabric remnants and it was fun and I got some interesting results. Another busy week. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks! The shirts were easy. Glad you had fun ice dyeing.
I like the black and yellow best – great effect.
Isn’t it strange that we visit all sorts of places when we’re on holiday and don’t always make the best of what we have on our own doorstep. Glacier Park looks spectacular!
Thanks Judith. It is true that we get complacent about our surroundings. Glacier Park is wonderful. Just had not been to that far corner of it.
I really like your shirts – lovely effect you’ve achieved with the ice-dyeing.
I can understand your fascination with lichen etc, because when you look closely at natural things it’s like seeing a whole new world.
Thanks Lyn – and you put it just right, it is like a new world in the land of lichen.
