Last night found me with Tina Bluefield, Mita Barter, Mary-Austin Klein, and Perry Hoffman at the Metro Galleries in Bakersfield, California.  It was the opening night for a group show called From the Desert to the Sea.  I was proud to have my work there, in this big, lovely gallery with the art of some of my artist colleagues from the high desert.  The opening was well attended, and we are always excited to see red dots go up next to our work.  It was a quick trip, up and back in one day, and I found myself crawling into bed at 1:30 am.  Needless to say, I am feeling more than a little zombie-like today.  A big thank you goes out to the owner of the gallery, Don Martin, and Sergio, the young man who helped get a red dot or two up on the wall.  Thanks, guys!

I also have a few flower photos to share with you.  These flowers were discovered in a vacant lot in Palm Springs last week by my friend Nora and I.  We HAD to stop.

Desert Dandelion, sand verbena and Esteve's Pincushion.  Wow.

This week, Mr. Pono and I will be driving out to Denver, Colorado.  Pono will be staying with his Grandpa and Grandma while I get on a plane to fly to THAILAND.  Off to see the husband!!!  Stay tuned for adventures in Thailand, coming soon...

So glad you got to your gallery opening. Being with like-minded people is so helpful, and red dots don't hurt a thing.
Thanks for always looking for beauty, even in vacant lots. You are a blessing to the world!
