Today we had a special treat. Paul Bingham of the Bingham Gallery and the Thunderbird Foundation invited us to visit Maynard Dixon's home and studio and to paint on the grounds. Maynard Dixon is one of my favorite painters, and we were all eager to spend the day at such a historical spot. During the tour of the gallery - Paul made us coffee, too! - I saw some of the most beautiful work by a number of wonderful artists, including some amazing works by Milford Zornes.
Next, we walked through the buildings and toured the grounds. We headed up on the hill behind the property, where Maynard Dixon's ashes were scattered, and also those of Zornes and his wife. They have a nice view up there, and I bet they're happy.
