Not Expired

Well, I haven't disappeared forever. We left Bastrop on July 4 and headed for New Mexico.

We arrived in Fredricksburg, Texas, just as the parade was starting so had to make a detour.

As we drove down the side street I happened to see this giant cactus. The driveway must be 10 - 12 feet wide, right? So the cactus is just as wide and just as tall or better. Gotta love Texas. :)

I won't bore you with all the details but we came on Interstate 10 to Ft. Stockton before turning north. Ft. Stockton is so bleak. I'm sure the history is very interesting, but that is another story.

I snapped the train station among the over 150 photos on the road trip.

The speed limit on Interstate 10 you can see here. Wow. I'm sure the usual suspects still speed and do 5 mph over the limit, don't you? Scary.

We arrived safely and hung my show on Thursday night. On Friday we went to play golf in Socorro and buy the food for the reception on Saturday.

I was snapping a photo of the water lilly on the right in this photo and the concentric ripples you see on the left about a third of the way up are where Gene's ball had just gone in the water. :) Interesting.

My reception was today, I am very tired and will paint in the yard at Peppers Gallery tomorrow, so will post about all that on Monday from Albuquerque.

Jo - Hope your show went great!! I just love the pine cones - "Pine Yard Art" - the colors and painting are beautiful!!!

Hello Coach Jo! I see you are the coach for Gene's blog. You are teriffic!
The show looks so good.
I really like the golf ball in the water picture. Too funny.
Here's to selling it all, so you don't have to bring any home.

Regina and Leslie, thanks for the good wishes on the show. And, nice comments on the paintings and blogging.

I like the Pine Yard Art, too. The Loblolly cones are different than the Ponderosa that are here, so people may think they look weird. Ha.

I did sell "Adobe Memories" and some small items. That is always nice.
