Hi, here I am again sitting in the Albuquerque airport. We took a shuttle back from SantaFe. What a beautiful four and a half days. Perfect weather, a brain blistering intake of Southwestern art. Great food at the Ore House and Atomic Grill to name a few eateries worth checking out if you're in town. The plaza was our favorite sitting place watching the locals and 'touristas' rambling about. I stopped in the gallery Santa Fe Fine Art Brokerage to see Marian Padilla the owner. I have known Marian for several years as I have three large watercolors on display.
Now we are in the air at 30,000 ft. headed for Dallas/Ft.Worth. The one thing I felt was accomplished this vacation trip is that I filled my cup up for the rest of the year, creative-wise. I took over 1000 photographs in preparation for several different series in oil and acrylic. One series is called 'Curb Abstractions.' I also met my friend Charlie Andrijanoff a Santa Fean artist who bartends at the Inn on the Almeda. Charlie's work can be found on the Santa Fe Artists website. It will take a few days to get back in the groove before Tim and I paint outdoors again. I also am losing one day a week to my college class which I am teaching this semester. I figure by now I should have a fresh outlook on my plein air landscapes. Hey,Tim it's good to be back.
