santa fe report (brief version)
This morning I'm wading through the aftermath of ten days away from home--it's wonderful to be back. I'm tired but buoyed up by the good trip and because now all the effort (and occasional stress) of the exhibit in Santa Fe at Darnell Fine Art
is behind me. The evening of the opening was rainy, but many people came anyway. It was a very nice event, followed by a fun meal with friends, family, and gallery staff.
I am in wait-and-see mode now in regards to sales...and am assured by the gallery folks that in spite of the slow economy, they will continue to occur over the coming days as interested people reach their decisions. It also helps me to know how amazingly well things have gone at Darnell over the past year that I have had my work there. So, I'm trying not to hover by the phone and computer waiting for news...and to think "whatever happens, happens."
There was much more to the trip west, including a studio visit with the wonderful painter Diane McGregor
, relaxation at the hot springs, and hikes in the high desert. I'll post a few more images and stories later.
