Glorious Spring in New Mexico
The Land of Enchantment IS:
We have been nesting since January in our new 50-year-old Nat Kaplan adobe house and studio and making it ours. Now it’s time to celebrate the joy of a desert spring and the warmth and friendliness of neighbors and friends. We will continue with direct sales of oil paintings and photos, but Nicholas will also be talking with galleries in Santa Fe and elsewhere to market his work. We will also be marketing the Guardians of the Everglades portraits and accompanying stories. I will find another conservation project, and what is screaming for my attention is the increasing drought and the fights over water. Agua es vida. Simple as that.
If you are in New Mexico, it’s PARTY TIME. Join us MAY 18, 6-9 pm. Call, text or email firstname.lastname@example.org your RSVP by May 16.
