I've been away on family and climbing trips but have recently returned to the studio. Took the family to San Diego. We all enjoyed Sea World and the San Diego Zoo. I also made a trip to southern Utah to paint (Zion NP, Johnson Canyon, etc.) and visit the Bingham Gallery. The Bingham is getting ready for their annual Maynard Dixon Country event to be held Aug. 28, 29 & 30. I am not participating in this years event, but I encourage you to go if you can. Lots of great art and good times in a beautiful location.
