The new Tapestry Gallery is open in Gypsy Plaza in Madrid, NM. My landscapes are beautifully displayed along side many other fine artists. Handwoven garments, felted hats and lovingly crafted fine art ceramics make for an elegant and inviting atmosphere.

THE ESCAPE

Oh my, another raven.  I have become interested in this bird and I don’t know why.  I like the bird in silhouette by itself, but I also like what it does to focus a small painting.  I think this bird
