I spent 15 days on vacation –one week in Arizona, one week in New Mexico. Adjusting to the elevation was no joke. I’ve spent most of my life living at or around sea level. My homes for the past 10 years have been at around 2000 feet in elevation near the base of the Great Smoky Mountains. Bisbee, AZ has an elevation of approx 5500 feet and Silver City, NM has an elevation of 5800 feet, both higher than Denver, CO. Plus, Bisbee is known as the city of 1000 steps. We hear you get used to it after 3 weeks, but we only had two. We survived, but it was eye-opening. On an unrelated note, I think we took as many bites of food as we did steps. That’s a lot of forks folks. We’ve decided to start calling our vacations “culinary tours”. It seems more purposeful, less gluttonous, ha.
Now that I’m back, I am hard at work planning my year, including a residency (or three), a solo show, some juried shows, some invitationals. I have some announcements, but we’ll save those for another day. I am also looking to expand my “comfort” galleries to new areas. You know those galleries that you show in time and time again because you like the people, you like the space, you like the curation, you like the sales. You’re comfortable. I have a handful of those, but I am always looking to freshen my resume. This next call is a great way to try on a new Gallery or, if you’ve shown at Las Laguna Gallery before, continue to develop that relationship. Take a look.
