|Artist at work|
Please meet JoAnne Allen, daughter of an artist, who started painting with me on a river trip and is now taking classes from several outstanding artists in Albuquerque and paints with me regularly as well, both on the river and at my house. JoAnne is a retired dentist who is exploring all manner of activities now that she has the time. She and her husband are planning to build an off-the-grid house like ours in Buena Vista, Colorado. Will document some of their adventures with that project in upcoming posts.
