In this painting life of mine, I have come to love visiting the Southwest - and visiting my dad and stepmother, who live in Tubac, just south of Tucson. I love the huge spaces, the enormous, clear sky, the brilliant colors of the earth and the hills. The landscapes thrill me, and I look forward to these painting trips all year. I've sometimes wondered if my delight in the Southwest - and in big skies and wide-open landscapes - came because that was what I saw first.
