aka, “My Bad!” or “Oh $#!*”
I sincerely apologize for the e-mail blast that went out last night from my new personal blog I was testing. I didn’t realize the new blog, titled “Right of Center,” shared the same subscriber list as my photography blog. When it’s ready to go live, the new blog will be by invitation only.
To those who sent me cogent, articulate protests, I thank you. Now, back to our original programming.
Desert Caballeros Western Museum
DCWM is one of the premiere western art museums in the country. One of the reasons we moved to Wickenburg is because DCWM was here.
I’m proud to say, three of my prints are hanging in the museum, next to American masters like Remington and Russell. OK, so my prints are in a separate building but, still, they’re in the same museum!
These three were selected as part of the West of Center exhibit of Wickenburg Art Club members. All the art is for sale and all proceeds will be donated to survivors of the Yarnell Hill fire. The fire, which killed 19 firefighters, was about 20 miles north of us. The sale of these prints will assist the families of the firefighters through the 100 Club of Arizona, Yarnell residents through the Arizona Community Foundation and their pets will benefit from the Wickenburg Humane Society which cared for them during and after the fire.
Tomorrow, I’m photographing my friend Paul and his crew fell a huge eucalyptus tree. I don’t know exactly how tall it is but I estimate it’s a good 40 feet. I’ll try to get some photos uploaded quickly.
