Serendipity was in play this past week. I received a call to hang some of my work in a hurry. A Gallery, the Tryst at Inspirado was holding a reception for the Phoenix Black Chamber of Commerce.
Got the call on Thursday and delivered on Friday. Lots of people, some inquiries and you never know.
Just for fun, we took a trip up north to look at some of the red mountain in Sedona and have a little lunch at the Red Planet Diner.
