Abiquiu Bluff

Abiquiu Bluff___6x8____for SB
I am headed off to the northern Great Plains tomorrow. A fantastic trip I have planned for over a YEAR is finally going to happen!
Here is the "itinerary" in brief:
From St. Paul, MN I will take the Amtrak Empire Builder across the plains to Montana!...painting all the way! These will be "drive-by" paintings, many studies, and sketches from the rails. MANY of the works will be under the full moon. I am MOST excited about that part.
My oldest friend in the world (well, she is about my age, but I have known her longer than anyone) is coming along for the ride, and we expect to have a blast on the rails.
I hope to blog a little bit, but if not, there will be PLENTY of new thoughts when I get back, next week.

Have a great trip. Lucky you. I went down to the coast but my back was hurt. I didn't think I'd get to do anything but I did do a few small paintings. I got some great news. I was asked to submit two sculptures to the Insight Gallery's Texas Stampede show. Thanks again for your encouragement when I took your workshop!

Have fun on your trip. Taking the train does sound like fun. Albiquiu is one of my favorite places and you have captured it so well.
