In just about a month I'll be heading to the beautiful Southwest to attend the Paradise Artist Retreat in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. It's been quite some time since I've visited this region and I'm looking forward to spending a few days among fellow artists inspiring and learning together.


I'll also be taking the time to explore the wilderness areas surrounding the event, and might even just have to settle into an old favorite book of mine regarding the Southwest, The Monkey Wrench Gang, as the evenings come to a close.


I'm looking forward to being surrounded by such outstanding artists and can't wait to learn and grow from every seminar being offered. It's been some time since I've oil painted as well, so I can't wait to get back to it while there. All in all, it's going to be a great time!
