An artist's journal.
Here you'll find my paintings and musings, where the featured subjects could likely cover just about anything.
The last 4+ years I've been caring for my best buddy B during his courageous fight to live through cancer and it's complications. I'm tickled to report, he's getting better and I'm finding small bits of painting time again.

Looking forward to a daily celebration of life's gifts by using the brightest, happiest colors in the box!

I've been on vacation this last week or so... my best friend from childhood, Lisa, came from Vero Beach, Florida for a 5 day visit... she brought her two daughters, Kristen and Jenny and we had a great time!... we got in lots of local Tucson shopping, including the 4th Ave and the University of Arizona districts...we also did a lot of sightseeing, including a visit to Kartchner Caverns and a scenic drive through our Saguaro National Monument... i don't think either Kristen or Jenny had ever seen a saguaro catus before, let alone a 'forest' of them... it's neat to see the desert through a newcomers eyes... it reminds me of how i felt the first time i came out here to arizona from florida... the mountains are beautiful, and much of the vegetation is beautiful in a unique way... i just wish we had an ocean... i miss my ocean... probably why i paint a lot of seascapes and waterscapes.... landlocked, i am, and at times, restless, for the sea.

We found time to take an overnight trip to Sedona, Arizona and spent about 5 hours being pampered at Sedona's New Day Spa... facials, sauna and something called the 'true sedona clay treatment'...oh my gosh! it was amazing! a great getaway!

Lisa with her girls.

Me, with Kristen and Jenny.

I have lived in Arizona 37 years and had never visited Sedona's beautiful area's was absolutely breathtaking and a fun experience for all of us...

A few photos shot on our way out of Sedona, Arizona. To see enlarged versions of these photos, click on each picture.

Thanks, girls, for a wonderful visit! I'll miss you!
