Jim and I are participating in the 20th Annual Oracle Artist Studio Tour on April 14 & 15 from 10 am to 5 pm.

I’ll have my newest Water Reflection and Nooks & Crannies paintings for sale. I’ll also have my artist books, note cards and maybe a few surprises. My creative imagination is working overtime to get ready for the event.

Jim will be showing a new group of Sonoran Desert Wildflower photographs that he has been working on for the past year. These images are different from what you have seen before and he is excited to be offering them for sale. He’ll have framed prints and note cards from which to choose.

Our friend, Val Bembenek, will be joining us this year. She is a paper artist and will be showing her decorative paper maché bowls, handmade stationery and other items all created with recycled materials and desert botanicals.
