Big Changes Ahead!

The last month has been chaotic.  I've sold my house in Oak Creek Canyon (north of Sedona, Arizona) and international shippers have packed up almost everything I own in a 20' container.  It is now on a container ship in the Bering Sea, heading towards Asia.  The first stop is in China but eventually the ship will arrive in New Zealand on December 2nd, just a few days before I arrive.  I have a couple of weeks to find a house, buy it and have my container delivered and unpacked in my new abode.  I am hoping my new studio will have a view of the South Pacific or perhaps a mangrove edged inlet!  New Zealand will be my primary residence but I will return to the U.S. twice a year for a couple of months per trip.

Before leaving for New Zealand, I'll be attending  The Waterfowl Festival which happens next weekend in Easton, Maryland.  This is one of the smaller oils that I'll have with me at the festival.
