New Page Studio & Plein Air Gear

Inspired by an artist umbrella acquired over a decade ago and the need for new arts gear I have a new page. The umbrellas last use was at Ghost Ranch New Mexico where an irreplaceable part was lost in Box Canyon, my guess is the ghost of Georgia O'Keefe took off with it as a token for drawing her mountain. Small price if you ask me.

In balance with nature

"It is natural for the human heart to want nature in its subtle beauty, its forms, its color and sounds. Most hold onto the idea of living in balance with nature as healing. It is where we want be at home and find our communities nestled". - Nancyjane Huehl
