This weekend I was able to travel up the west coast to one of the oldest national parks in country, Crater Lake National Park.
In a new series of paintings, I will be exploring our countries greatest treasures, the national park system. In each painting, I will give a glimpse to the fora and fauna of a specific park set against its most iconic topographic featuring. In this painting, The Spirit of Guadalupe, I visit Guadalupe Mountains National Park in Texas.
I just finished an event at a wonderful new gallery located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The owners, staff and collectors made the show a perfect example of controlled chaos and a whole bunch of fun to be at. If any of you are in the Smoky Mountains area, I heartily suggest you drop by and say “hey” to the gang. Tell them I sent you.
“On the road again…I just can’t wait to get on the road again.” Zac and I are heading up the trail to Branson, Missouri and I have to admit I am enjoying the time with “Zaco” or “Zacareinie” as he is often called around the house. Between his time at college and the requirements of his position with the studio, years seemed to have passed without us goofing about like we did as he grew up.
