Greetings <<First Name>>,

I'm wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I sincerely hope you've had an excellent year and it will continue on into 2016. Thought you might enjoy these winter scenes from Flagstaff, Arizona where I lived from 1967 to 1971 and home to Northern Arizona University. Go Jacks!

The image directly above is a large painting (48" X 72") I completed a couple of years ago. It's my take on some of Carlos Castanedas' antics. Enough said. You can see this exhibit featuring the works of artists from 22 X 30 at First Studio Gallery, 631 N. 1st Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85003. Here are articles from the New Times (click it) and Arizona Republic (click it) pertaining to the exhibit.
Blueblack Cold - 27 X 21 inches - Watercolor, Acrylic and Gesso on Paper -
A Tribute to Robert Hayden and the poem "Those Winter Sundays"
This painting is part of the current exhibition at the
Church of the Beatitudes.
Robert Hayden, 1913 - 1980

Sundays too my father got up early 
and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold, 
then with cracked hands that ached 
from labor in the weekday weather made 
banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him. 

I’d wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking. 
When the rooms were warm, he’d call, 
and slowly I would rise and dress, 
fearing the chronic angers of that house, 

Speaking indifferently to him, 
who had driven out the cold 
and polished my good shoes as well. 
What did I know, what did I know 
of love’s austere and lonely offices?

Two Person Exhibit

Myself and fellow artist Valerie McMullen are co-exhibiting works at the Church of the Beatitudes located at 7th Avenue and Glendalethrough January 20th. You can see it on Sundays from 8:30 am to 11 am, and by special arrangement. During the week you can go to the church office and ask to see it. The administrators will be happy to let you in.
