Please click image to enlarge ^
I'm really excited about this show. I'm sharing the walls with printmaker and NMHU art faculty professor, Todd Christensen. I'm debuting a large scale floral tinwork, as well as a large scale painting of the newly purchased Castaneda Harvey House Hotel. Todd is exhibiting several pieces from his new series.  Please stop in! The food and people are wonderful. Some of the best in town.
