Welcome to the second High Road Artist Newsletter! I’m so glad you’ve signed up to get these monthly communications.
The big news last month was the opening of our gallery, the Anna Karin Gallery, for the season and, along with it, the sprucing up of the gallery’s exterior. Bill Loyd has made some gorgeous planters for us (see previous post http://high-road-artist.com/10134/southwest-living/anna-karin-gallery-truchas-nm-new-planters/). Anna and I will be taking another trip to Taos next week to visit the good folks at Petrees Nursery to buy all the plants (see previous post http://high-road-artist.com/10206/southwest-living/petrees-nursery-and-greenhouses-taos-nm/). Can’t wait to see the planters really take off!
AND Isabro has delivered the wooden pieces for our windows (see previous post http://high-road-artist.com/10063/southwest-living/anna-karin-gallery-warming-the-exterior/)! Anna and I will be painting them this week and Isabro will install them. What a difference they’re going to make!
In fact the gallery itself is like one big art project. We keep adding to it and making it more artful. The blog is similar in that it’s one huge act of creation. From time to time I think about my life with some satisfaction knowing that, beyond painting, I’m creating something all the time. Eric Fromm famously said that human beings either create or they destroy. I’m very happy to walk the path of creation. I suspect you’re all with me on that.
So the gallery is really coming together and we’ve already had many people stop by to visit, even several readers of the blog. I hope more and more of you readers will find your way up the High Road to Truchas. It’s always wonderful to meet you in person and to share your stories.
Here are the five most popular posts from the month of April. Enjoy dipping into them again or for the first time and don’t forget to share these with your friends. We want our lovely blog community to grow and grow.
