Miriam’s Trip Blog: Leaving Utah and Heading for Taos

September 16th, 2012 · by Cyndi · 3 Comments

This the pool in Moab, Utah, after we left Arches.  This has an indoor and an outdoor pool.  This is the indoor pool and a huge water slide.  There’s two diving boards way in the back.

This the shallow pool and three little water slides on those brown rocks.  It was too little for me.

Outdoor pool Moab, Utah

If you click on the link, it will lead to a video of me going around in some water in that pool and the water carries you.

Miriam demonstrates the current pool.

Now we’re in Taos and this is the friend we’re staying with, Aralia.  She’s giving me a painting lesson.  We’re painting a color wheel.  This is her website.  She’s an artist.  http://magdahliastudios.com/2012/09/10/transitions/

Aralia teaches Miriam how to make a color wheel

I colored the painting with my colored pencils, the one with the rain clouds.  These are the color wheels.  The one I’m holding is Aralia’s.  The other one is mine.

Stay tuned for our next one and our second day in Taos.

    That indoor water slide looks pretty awesome! I’m glad you got to make some art on the the trip. Welcome home!

    Those current pools are a lot of fun. We have one at our YMCA and if you swim against the current it really gives you exercise! Loved the video. You were so much fun to watch!

    Color wheels can be used for lots of things. I use them for quilting and for the computer. I’ve never painted one though.
