A morning in Sky Valley

Dillon Road arcs to the north of a stretch of I10 that I zoom up and down, and runs through Sky Valley.  For a skyaholic it is odd that I should never have taken Dillon Road – it’s been on the bucket list for awhile.  Well I was invited to speak about my work in front of the Spa City Palletteers and they meet in… Sky Valley.  No more excuses!  This posting is mostly pics – I spent a little while talking about my work then did a really brief demo.  Thanks to Caren Godwin for taking the photos.  It seems that I must zoom around very fast when I work as my hands were usually blurred.  And thank you to the Paletteers for putting on such a wonderful welcome!

  1. Jeni! :-). Thank you so much for thinking about me! I am doing well! Had to do all the paperwork to change medical groups so I could see the specialist that I wanted, so I’m in waiting mode a bit….turns out she’s going on holiday and I couldn’t see her until 3/24. But I’m good with that as I didn’t want to “do anything” until after my son gets married on 3/28. SO I’m just taking good care of myself…went down to a 4 day workweek!!… And just enjoying all the blessings in my life. I am so sorry I haven’t been writing. Honestly I don’t know what that’s about. I’ve gotten really quiet :-). Who knew??? LOL. ANYWAY I LOVE these pictures of you and your event!!! It’s wonderful to put a face to your name and to peek into your process a bit!!! Xoxox. Thank you again for checking up on me!! Hugs!! Janece

    • Wonderful to hear from you! I understand if you’ve just ‘gone quiet’ – there must be lots to do for the wedding, and you likely have some introspection going on in addition to ‘organizing’. Have a wonderful time and I hope all goes well on the 24th and awesomely on the 28th!

  2. Indian Wells. Borrego Springs. Sky Valley. Reading through your posts takes me back to my years in that part of the California desert. Your artwork captures the atmosphere there.
