This past weekend I drove to New Mexico for the opening of the Albuquerque Museum Miniatures & More show. It was a quick trip- 24 hours of driving squeezed into about a 54 hour trip. But, I'm glad I went. I saw many friends at the show and I always enjoy the drive, especially at this time of year. I was more than a bit worried about how the show would go, given the recent economic news. I haven't heard whether overall things were slower, but Summer Moon sold, for which I am very grateful.

About a year ago, I was making the drive back from a show in California, and wrote about not being sure where home was. But Sunday, as the high desert of New Mexico gave way to the rolling hills of north Texas, I knew I was heading in the right direction.

Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous painting Deborah. I love that little hit of light on the water in these last two pieces.

Thanks Cooper. And good luck with your show!

Deborah! Hi. Congratulations on your sale. Even for a recovering touring fork singer, 24 hours of driving over a 54 hour trip makes my heart stand still. But if the trip allowed you the feeling of coming home, it was well worth the effort.

This is a wonderful painting - right on the mark with the seasonal color and beautifully composed in the horizontal format

Hi Suzanne- I am a road warrior, but that trip was a bit much for me too! Thanks for visiting and I've really been enjoying your watercolors.
