My good friend, Alex Richardson came for a visit - and all the way from London!

In March I posted of his petite piece Blue Mesa Floor, when recalling of my experience at the Petrified Forest National Park during my September residency. The pastel scene depicts an rapid, approaching storm viewed from the Blue Mesa outlook.

I was able to enjoy his little painting since it would be many months before he arrived in the States. A sweet good-bye, but know it's flying to a good home.
