Chihuly and Thanksgiving

New Mexico greetings to one and all!!!!

It’s been a little over a year since the Caterpillar Visitors Center and the Peoria Riverfront Museum opened up in downtown Peoria and it sure has been a great improvement to our city!

For those of you that remember Lakeview Museum, the PRM is a huge upgrade and they really have done a nice job with it! Since PRM has opened, we’ve had a couple of major shows with a great show of photographs from nature photographer Ansel Adams and now a show of glass work from the George R. Stroemple Collection. In this collection is the work of one of my favorite artists, Dale Chihuly! Chihuly’s glass work is incredible and if you’ve never seen it, do yourself a favor and come down to PRM in the next few months and check it out!

Here’s my snap of the exhibit room at PRM of the Chihuly and Friends show!

It’s Thanksgiving week and like me, I have a feeling that a lot of people that I know will be taking advantage of this short work week and traveling! I’ve traveled down here to New Mexico to spend Thanksgiving with my folks and am very happy about that!!!! I’m thankful for the people and things in my life, so this is a great time of the year to reflect on all of that!

If you’re going to travel this week to visit family and friends for Thanksgiving, make it a safe one!!!!!

Have a great week as always and thanks again for checking out my work!!!!

Organ Mountain, N.M.

New Mexico greetings,

I was fortunate to have a great day yesterday to get out for a little hike in the Organ Mountains outside of Las Cruces, N.M. and as you can see from the photo, it was nice!!!!!! This shot was inspired by the Ansel Adams exhibit that I saw last month at Lakeview Museum. Ansel Adams is considered by many to be the father of American nature photography and I’ve always admired his work and one day hope to walk in his shoes!

Thanks to all and have a great weekend!!!!
