After driving 4,200 miles from Maine to Oregon via DC, Nashville, and Santa Fe, we finally landed in Bend just before Christmas. We're settled and we're loving it! I have a small studio setup and got back into the swing of things last week. The first painting I made here was a small portrait of friend Joy during a hike along the Deschutes River. Jonathan and I plan to hike along more of this river and fish its waters soon; until then I'll happily let my paintbrush keep me connected to the East Outlet and Maine's waters as well! As 2015 comes to a close we're just incredibly grateful for this adventure we're on and can't wait to see what transpires over the next year. Many and belated thanks to all who helped make my November sale -- and as a result this adventure! -- a huge success. You know how you are and you should keep an eye out for a postcard from Bend!
