At the Tryst Gallery in Chandler, AZ this week.

with 2 comments

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.

2008 Resolutions "The Back Yard"

with 4 comments

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. Sedona is a tourist stop with to many gift shops, but all you need do is raise your eyes and see the real reason for being there. This is a photo I took away from the main shopping area and lone car is the norm. Waking up in the morning and seeing something like this will get the creative juices going.

If you are in New York, stop by the Metropolitan Transit Authority Museum and see the work of Marvin Franklin, read his story and appreciate him and his work.
