  1. my girlfriend and I have sent in our deposit -- looking forward to it :0) it is my birthday present to myself -- my birthday is april 28 -- I will be 65 -- :0) I have taken a couple of your online watercolor sketch classes thru joggles and look sooo forward to meeting you in person :0)

  2. I want to go to this one too.

  3. Santa Fe (and Taos!) are so special, a world apart [though growing too fast these days!]. I kow your art retreats there will be wonderful! I have been reading about Mabel Dodge Luhan and now suggest that you might enjoy reading,"Half Broke Horses" by Jean Wells. It is the story of her grandmother who grew up in the west Texas, New Mexico area and attended the Loretto school in Santa Fe where you will be!


Thanks so much for visiting!
