Back in Arizona - and Paint Sedona Plein Air Painting Workshops Begin!

Sculpture at Old School Gallery near
El Morro, New Mexico
After 3907 miles, 23 days and four workshops, we finally arrived in Arizona.  The odometer on our little Subaru Outback hit 119,000 miles somewhere between Ramah, New Mexico, and Sedona.  Thanks to our stops to teach workshops, it didn't seem like all that long a trip.  The longest part was the push after the last workshop; the best word to describe the stretch of I-40 through Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas is "ugh."

New Mexico, however, was a delight.  We lived there for several years, and it's always a joy to go back.  We stopped for the night at El Morro Cabins & RV Park and took a hike at El Morro National Monument.  The oaks and grasses are full of beautiful, warm fall colors.

Now we're unpacking and reorganizing for the winter.  Also, the first Paint Sedona (www.PaintSedona.com) workshop begins today.  I've got a full schedule of these workshops for the winter, so if you'd like a winter getaway, now's the time to sign up.  I'll post a few pictures from this week's workshop over the weekend.
