Day 3, I became fixated by angels. Here is a rather bad photo that I took of one in the cemetery the day before. I decided to work a drypoint etching of one.
To start with, I loosened up by making a few monotypes and getting the press warm.
I then spent the rest of the day scratching in a stone angel... Don't Blink!
Of course, it was St. Paddy's Day, so it would have been rude not to go into town and have a Guiness. The town was also proudly serving "Mountain Oysters", but I decided to pass and take a grilled cheese sandwich instead.
I found the old bars had very interesting, eclectic lighting.
This one was in Virginia City's famous "Bucket Of Blood Saloon". You have to love the Wild West don't ya?
