big move out west

good ol' AZ sunshine this time of year. 

oooooh i've missed homemade tamales!!!!!!!

last day in NY w/ my love and cat in tow. 

the ol' studio, for now.

well, we packed up everything, movers came a day early, slept in an empty apt for two days and flew out to Arizona. here we are! my girlfriend Christy and I grew up in AZ and haven't lived here in well over 10 years. my life's journey has been a hell of a ride so far and i wouldn't change a single event. i'm looking forward to what the future brings. we're also fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work from home which has been a huuuge dream of ours (plus being in a place where the cost of living is cheaper than NY helps a bit). i can't believe i'm going to be painting full time! wow! its hasn't hit me yet and it feels like vacation at the moment but it will settle in soon enough. i still have a boat load of paintings to do for our January show so i've set up shop temporarily at ma's house. i'm so excited to work. its been waaaay to long. here's some pics so far. more to come!
 p.s. it feels great to come back to a place that shows so much love.

Good Luck to both of you. Being on home turf will probably keep the creative juices flowing! Have a great holiday too.

Wow, didn't realize you were moving...wondered why there were no new posts of your work recently. So happy for you both, finding a place where you can paint full time is fantastic and to bring yourselves home is the icing in the cake. Looking forward to what the west brings out in your work.
