Painting Journey Map

I come from an era where you could see 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' in your PJ's as you are jumping out of a swing at the drive-in movie. Mom's homemade popcorn in a brown grocery bag as our treat in the back of the station wagon to entice us to 'come in' and watch a movie we couldn't see or hear from back there in our makeshift bed. I, number four of five, usually asleep before the intermission. So guess you could say, I learned early how to sleep in the back of a car... and felt safe and secure there; not home, but definitely worth the adventure.

Being asked to write 'your story' of the good, the bad and the ugly from an epic journey, quite frankly is harder than driving your Tahoe and criss-crossing the USA solo for 21,000+ miles as a woman, camping from my Tahoe at County, State, and National Parks to pursue the opportunity to grow as an Artist nationally, with the only means before me. Didn't think it was doing anything extraordinary -- simply doing what came naturally to do. Make the best of 'The Good, The Bad and the Ugly'. Am I done writing yet?

If you would like to hear more about the places and details of this 21,000 mile painting journey, I would be honored to send you a PDF that includes more of it; with pictures and tales of many of the "At That Moment..." experiences that made up what I call the Grace, Love, Fellowship Tour. All culminates to the exhibit on 27 February 2015, which it turns out, has the exhibit at two and a a half years in the making from the original five month journey.

I look forward to sharing more with you. We haven't even made it out the door yet, let alone to the first big red dot! Plein Air Convention in Monterey CA. Hope you will join in the experiences and arrive at your own exceedingly, more than ever imagined "At That Moment..." for life, just as I have; Godspeed.
