One of my favorite places to hike to is an abandoned orchard near the top of a hill about a five minute drive from my house. Usually I bring only a few garbage bags and pick up litter, or a large pail to fill with the plums and pears which grow in abundance there. Until recently I had never even brought a camera along to take photographs with. Much of the hike is underneath the power lines or through woods scarred from recent brush fires. I’m surprised the orchard trees have survived at all.
Spokanes First Friday Artwalk is almost here. I have 6 new prints at The Brick Wall gallery (530 W. Main, Skywalk level). Featured artists this month are Jen Mitsuko and Larry Blackwood. Music by the 3H Band. I’ll be there from 5:00pm until 7:00pm. Afterwards I’ll be checking out the annual local art event “Terrain 6″ at the Music City Building (1011 W 1st Ave).
I keep getting asked what new things I’ve done this year and what my future plans are. When I reply that I’ve been taking care of unfinished projects and getting rid of things, I usually get a look of incomprehension. If people had any idea how much stuff I have hoarded in my garage, basement, and yard, they might give me a different look. I’m currently cleaning up my project cars and parts and selling them on eBay. Goodbye trailer full of BMW parts. I won’t miss you!
I’ve finally got the site up and running!
