The sandhill cranes have been at Fruit-grower's Reservoir and gone. Spring  rain came, and came, and came. I've been to Portland to see my son and his family. His son, my grandson, Max Torke, graduated from Sonoma State University in California, and is now doing an internship with NASA. Did I mention he graduated summa cum laude with a double major in chemistry and physics? I'm so proud and happy for him. 

The biennial IAPS show in Albuquerque is over with many new ideas and materials for the pastel painter. Now we are getting ready for a show with the Apple Shed, in Cedaredge - we being my students and I - where we'll show through July and August. I also was accepted into the Colorado Pastel Society's juried show with two pieces. Wow. So much to see and do. Promises of doing more here on the website are just beginning to come together. Not much for now but lots later. Have a good summer and happy painting. I'll be around.


Your crane is stunning. Gorgeous work.
