Making Paper & Riding Horses

Our nephew was visiting from Illinois for a couple of weeks. He came down to visit and get his first job (at our shop!) He attended a really cool program at the Art Institute of Phoenix where they have high school kids come for a week immersion. He got to learn video editing and some flash animation programing. Then we turned him into a papermaker!
He was really good at papermaking. It was fun having him at the studio.
He got some time to do some cool mixed media techniques with DJ before she flew home.
Near the end of his visit, we took a day off and went horseback riding in northern AZ. It was about 20 degrees cooler up north which was a great break from 110 degree heat of late.
It was so wonderful to be totally unplugged for hours and leisurely riding taking in the all gorgeous views. Ahhhhhhhhhh....
