October Bliss

I adore the month of October. Maybe it is because it is my birth month. Maybe it is because of the cool, crisp air which brings me back to life after a long, hot summer. Maybe its the Halloween spirits. Dare I say….”all of the above” Yes, it is definitely All of the Above I […]

Yellowstone “eye candy”

I know, I’ve been a little remiss in my blogging duties.  So how about a little “eye candy” compliments of our visit to Yellowstone. Hope you enjoyed your ‘sneak peek’ into Yellowstone.  I was just in awe of all the natural beauty.  The downside….lots of driving!  I believe the large loop around the park is […]

Morgan Hill

Our next stop on our California journey was Morgan Hill.  We stayed at the Maple Leaf Rv park. I really did not like this park much.  As you can see, the spaces are quite tight.  It is a large park with everyone crammed in like sardines.  On top of that, I think I only saw […]

The Raven Continues…..

As I mentioned last time, we are in “travel mode” which translates to “not much painting time” usually.  Fortunately, I did manage to find a few hours the other day….. I’m all over this thing!  LOL!  I’ve worked in the background, the middle, and on the Raven.  Trying out different techniques for textures and lighting.  […]

Historic Route 66 Gas Station

Tucumcari, New Mexico

I’m a little behind in my travel posting….I totally forgot the photos for Tucumcari, New Mexico.  It is an interesting little town on the Historic Route 66.  Sadly…it has seen better times, but there is such great potential here.  A one time resident,Doug Quarles, painted these murals.  There are many more then I captured here…..

Jerome and Albuquerque Zoo

The last few days have been full of fun and sun!  Jerome is a neat little town way up on the side of a mountain.  It was quite the twisty, turny road, but once we arrived…. Such an interesting place….full of fabulous little shops and artist studios and great restaurants. Just a wee bit up […]
