Escalante Canyons Art Festival

I’m in Escalante, Utah for the Escalante Canyons Art Festival in South East Utah. This is wild, wild red rock country. Absolutely beautiful. I just arrived so have no photos or paintings yet except this one a short stop on the way.             Today I get my canvases all stamped and the adventure begins. I …

There’s a Change A Comin’ in the Weather

I don’t about where you live but there’s a change a-comin’ in the weather around here. It’s almost Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer. How can that be when it was only last week I was looking forward to Memorial Day. It’s already a little over a month since we returned from our ride into Northern Minnesota and the …

You Could See Forever from Up There

As you know, I’ve been off on a painting adventure into northern Minnesota and the North Shore of Lake Superior. Last week I reported from Cooperstown, ND where we narrowly escaped a shelf cloud storm. Our travels since then have taken us as planned. It is really flat across most of that country, at least from the Black Hills in …

Wild Weather in North Dakota

We’re getting some wild weather in North Dakota on our ride to the Boundary Waters of Minnesota. This is the first time I’ve had sufficient internet to post some photos. Traveling the hinterlands has it’s disadvantages and that’s one of them. The advantages however do outweigh that little inconvenience. It’s been a great ride, as they all are. Our first night …

Land of Enchantment

Well, it’s been a great week here in the Land of Enchantment. Got several paintings done, which I’ll post when I get them properly sorted out from the photos I took. I didn’t post the daily progress as the internet here at the campground is really slow and some evenings, it was just to late to do anything but get …

The Sights and Sounds of Santa Fe

The sights and sounds of Sant Fe are a little different than what I was expecting. Of course there is a lot of eye candy in Santa Fe. . Lots of art in the galleries and lots of strange people. Great place to people watch. While the sights are an eye full, every afternoon, as now, there has been quite the …

Santa Fe Plein Air Festival

The Santa Fe Plein Air Festival is on and I’m here. Although I’m number six on the reserve list I decided to come down anyway and take advantage of the painting opportunities. It’s an invitational painting festival and limited to 31 artists. Perhaps I’ll get lucky and get included. The event is sponsored by the Plein Air Painters of New …

A Work of Art in the Lone Cone Saloon and Restaurant

There is a real work of art in the great Lone Cone Saloon and Restaurant in Norwood, Colorado.I say great because aside from a really good green chili cheese burger, they have a magnificent bar and liquor cabinet. A truly beautiful piece of furniture. It’s made of fine burl cherry and mahogany wood. A work of art in my opinion. …
