We are spending today packing the motorhome and preparing for our trip to Tucson. Late last year, I signed up for another Carl Purcell art workshop, but this one is not in Zion Nat'l Park where I have attended four workshops by him before, but in Tucson and it won't be a plein air workshop. Tucson in September is still hot enough that I am grateful for attending one of his workshops indoors! His work is magnificent and he always provides such a fun workshop experience. I always come away with loads of techniques and plenty of inspiration to try them in new paintings.
While there, Tom will be scoping out the area for a future trip there. Tucson is close enough to go for just a few days and there are lots of places there we have not explored, so we will look forward to going there again. In the meantime, this will be a welcome trip since we have not been able to travel much this summer and we are happy that we are healthy enough to start traveling again.
If the WiFi is good, I will plan on updating the blog with workshop tidbits and photos each night. I never know how all of that will work, though, such as when we were in Alaska and I was not able to use my blog at all.
