The month of May has flown by incredibly fast. Such a beautiful month to be outside in the desert enjoying the remaining flowers (still going!) and watching the bright greens fade to golden hues. The baby bunnies are still numerous and spastically cute and the quail families are scurrying around with their dozen little ones.
It was nice to have a little break from participating in major Art Shows, although I have been joining some of the other local artists on Sundays in downtown Joshua Tree for the weekly Arts and Crafts Festival. It’s a small, intimate show with mostly tourists and a few locals walking around looking for local handmade treasures and it’s keeping me on my toes and in good shape for the bigger upcoming shows (literally, my body is becoming a muscular tent setting-up machine). I’ll be there most Sundays for now, unless I’m out of town.
I will be packing up my car once again next week and heading to my hometown of Thousand Oaks for their annual ArtWalk on June 3-4, 10-5 pm. Looking forward to visiting with family and seeing some familiar places and faces.
Now go outside and enjoy the last bits of spring!
