Yesterday I left Colorado and made the 4 hour road trip back to Albuquerque, NM, to visit friends on my way back to Austin. US HWY 550 South opens into the vast wilderness of distant mesas and wide open spaces that can only be found in the Southwest of the USA. Just set the cruise and roll!
Even though I am home now, my mind is still in Colorado. I went to my home town of Durango, CO to visit family and to get a fresh feel for the Aspen trees that are so much a part of my childhood memories.
I am the featured artist at "Poet Tree" studio2gallery in Austin, TX this August. Since I paint only from my own references and sketches, seen and felt firsthand, I had the perfect excuse for a trip to the mountains!
