It’s finally starting to feel more like spring up here in the frozen northland, and I’m getting ready to go way far south again. Arizona, to be exact. Two shows coming up, one in Tempe, one in Tucson, and lots of road in between. While I’m not looking forward to the driver’s seat, I am looking forward to getting behind the lens in New Mexico.

Plans to do some shooting near Fort Sumner and Ruidoso are underway, as well as some side trips on the way home. I’ve heard that White Sands is breathtaking. And Bisbee, once home to my aunt and uncle, is now an artists colony. Or so I’ve heard. I want to chase down some of the 19th century cowboys and indians history — specifically following the Navajo¬† Long Walk to Bosque Redondo and perhaps some ruins in Gila. What about Taos? Abiquiu, home of Georgia O’Keeffe? It all fascinates me, and fits perfectly into my goals as an artist.

So the butterflies are starting to flutter. I’ve got lots to do to get my art packed for the shows, and the kit packed for the shoots.
