past month was spent in both Northern New Mexico and Southern
California. Spring time and April in particular, really highlights the
differences between to these two beautiful places. The mountains around
Taos were still covered in a new dusting of snow. The days were in the
high 50's, with evenings in the teens. Beautiful clouds during the day,
with the occasional thunder storm. Oceanside on the other hand is
starting the see the beginnings of the summertime onslaught. The
beaches are starting to fill up on the weekends. The street fair is
drawing huge crowds on
Thursday's, and I have had to turn on the air conditioner both in the
truck and at the office. First, a picture of Taos Mountain and then the
San Diego Skyline, just 2 weeks apart in time frame:
Other news included a notice
from the Visual Arts Society of Texas show in Denton, Texas, that my
image of the Rancho's Church at Night, had won the Merchant's Award for
photography. That show is still hanging at the Meadows Gallery through
June 3, 2011, in Denton, Texas.

My wife Christie has been
painting since 1984.
She works in both oils and watercolors. The two images above are a
couple of my favorites of her recent work, both of these being in
oil. Chris originally started painting with the urging of now
prominent southwest painter, Linda
Glover Gooch. Other notables she has studied with include: Ken
Decker (California), Linda Doll (California), Duane
Light (California), Ora
O'Toole (California), Wallace Lee (Utah), Carol Marine (Texas) & Susan
Cox (California). Christie
also attended the prestigious Royal College of Art in London, England
(1991), Mounts Bay Art Center in Cornwall, England (1992), and Palomar
College Arts Department in San Marcos, California (1990-1995).

|Last month's newsletter came
out right during the middle of our last trip over to New Mexico. I
included a few images taken in the southern part of the state. White
Sands, Carrizozo, & the bustling metropolis of Duran, New Mexico.
To continue where I left off, I thought I would show you a few more
picture and describe some of the places we traveled after that. Here
are a couple in northern New Mexico & Southern Colorado.
The above image was taken
between Salida & Alamosa, Colorado. The mountains in the background
are the southern end of the Rockies, known as the Sangre de Cristo.
This image is looking down into
the village of Valdez, north of Taos about 10 miles or so. The chapel
shown is the San Antonio Church, built in 1823.
Also, for those of you that are
going to be in the Espanola, NM area, my friend Craig Varjabedian is
going to be showing his newest work titled: "My Camera in New Mexico".
His images are in celebration of the New Mexico Statehood Centennial
(1912-2012), and will be on display at the Northern New Mexico Regional
Art Center - Convento Gallery. The show will be running from June 3rd
through 29th, 2011. The gallery is located at 101 Calle de las
