After our first night in Oklahoma City, our second stop on our "Journey West" with my friend and artist pal, Denise Rose, was Albuquerque to visit my sweet friend from high school, Carmen Sharpe. We enjoyed dinner in Old Town Albuquerque and a visit to a gallery to see some of her beautiful artwork.

Friday morning, we continue west through New Mexico, Flagstaff and finally late afternoon we arrive at our destination in Scottsdale, Arizona.

We look forward to studying with Jennifer McChristian at the Scottsdale Arts School all next week. Jennifer is an accomplished, award winning artist and our topic of study is "plein air" painting. We can hardly wait for Monday and the beginning of our workshop! So excited!!
