I taught two painting workshops over the weekend, one at Bravo School of Art in San Diego and one at San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas, CA. We had a blast both days.....thank you to all of my students! I will be returning this Fall to both locals...info will be up soon on my website and blog.
The Carl Sandburg home outside of Asheville....the air was lovely....you could just hear the poetry.....
The sea rocks have a green moss.
The pine rocks have red berries.
I have memories of you.
Speak to me of how you miss me.
Tell me the hours go long and slow.
Speak to me of the drag on your heart,
The iron drag of the long days.
I know hours empty as a beggar’s tin cup on a rainy day,
Empty as a soldier’s sleeve with an arm lost.
Speak to me . . .
The Biltmore House....faithfully preserved estate...the largest private residence in America.....county home to the Vanderbilts.....these are photos from the architectural tour. We hiked up to the roof for some splendid views.........
Dear Friends...Santa Rosa Plateau Reserve is one of the last reminding pristine ecological meadow land areas left in CA.....it's a wonderful place to hike, bike and paint at....
