Felt, Idaho – A Little Watercolor

I know… it’s not new, but I’m behind on my painting.  My sign shop has been absolutely insane this winter.  I’ve been working six 11-12 hour days a week  for a while now.  On Sunday, the hubby has stuff for me to do.  That means I’m only getting my little hour every morning, between 5 and 6 am to paint.    I’m not complaining, though.  I am really fortunate to be so busy at work.

When I was in Driggs in 2011, a lady who owned a wonderful little bead shop suggested I go check out Felt.  I’m so glad I did!  I painted this from the side of the road.  I was thrilled to see a tractor out there in the fields!   I’m going back this year for more of Felt.
