Here we go again!

Here we go again! By now I have realized I blog more traveling, and run silent at home. Travel involves layovers, boredom, aka blog time. My studio knows nothing of boredom. We had a big summer at the Avalanche Ranch. Painting, bird watching, publishing a new book, planning new adventures and enjoying familiar faces. We…

Summer fun and inspiration

It is so nice to be home for the summer! This is a rare occurrence for us, as we seem to be in perpetual motion. This summer we are happy to have a museum exhibition and workshop at home in Columbia, Missouri. The exhibition, “the Adventurous Spirit”, features my recent travel paintings, work from New…

Ketchup Blogging and other news

Ketchup Blogging.(hereby coining that term), is what I have to do when so much time passes between blog posts and I have to cram a whole lot of stuff in one post to catch up. It’s not the most appealing way to serve up info. I prefer to deliver tidbits of news in bite sized…

Full Circle at the Meridian Museum of Art

Blogging from home seems a lot harder to do somehow. When we’re on the go I blog in queue at the airport, or train station. At home I am focused on studio time, rarely leaving the Avalanche Ranch for more than groceries. And yet somehow I can hardly find the time to write a bit.…

Goodbye 2012

As I sit in my studio and watch the snow fall, I am happy to be home for the holidays, but a bit sad to say goodbye to 2012. For such a big year, a quiet ending is all I have planned. Maybe a little painting time and a bottle of Prosecco tonight. We talked…

Uluru

Once named Ayers Rock, now named Uluru, it’s a magnetic place that defies description. Why do people travel to the middle of Australia to a barren desert to see a big rock? Maybe the color of the orange-red sand complimenting the deep blue sky is visually stimulating, but there is something else that pulled us…

Australia’s Great Ocean Road

To really experience the best Australia has to offer, you have to drive through the bush at least once. I was told that the Great Ocean Road was an opportunity not to be missed, so we rented a car in Melbourne and spent a few days driving to Adelaide via the Great Ocean Road. To…

Katoomba Winter Magic Festival

On the advice from our new mate, Simon, the best host you could ever want in a hotel manager, we took a day trip out of Sydney into the Blue Mountains to the small town of Katoomba for the WinterMagic festival. From Simon’s description I imagined a fusion of Trekkie convention, Costume Party, and Steampunk…

Small world

Believe it or not, one can be in New York, Los Angeles and Sydney, Australia on the same day. Well, at least in the same 24 hour period. There is an international date line issue that confuses things and eats whole calendar dates. I missed Father’s Day entirely this year. My kids called me before…
