It is morning in New Mexico. The sun has come up over Taos Mountain and we have been given the gift of a new day.
The week ahead beckons. Our weary band of travelers begin their workshop week today, diving into the colors in their little traveling watercolor sets. I encourage students to bring what they have or what they’d like to learn with, so there are potentially multiple kinds of paints to explore today. One of my favorite things is to solve individual art problems with each person, helping them craft a travel journal that is all their very own. I can’t wait to get started.
I appreciate the patience of my dear Patrons as we figure out the tech angle on things here in NM and in the interface between my blog/website platform and Patreon itself. So this is a “public” post which will be here on Patreon as well as on my blog. More soon.
Greetings from beautiful Taos NM! I’ve arrived with Hub and Pup in tow for a few days of reacquainting myself with this place before getting down to business with the workshop at Mabel’s. It is both strange and familiar to once again find myself here after 2 years away due to the pandemic.
You can follow along on all the adventures and discoveries over on my Patreon page for just a dollar a month. And of course, if you want to chip in more, there are arty gifts to follow. This is a handmade thing of value, this blog. I appreciate the patronage and support of my readers. With the noise and algorithms of the social media realm, I’ve found myself shifting focus to where what I do is of true value, not just yelling into the void. So thank you for reading. Thank you for throwing a few coins into the proverbial hat of this traveling artist.
I’ll see you in the high desert.
