Next week we will pack and leave the Arizona studio. Every year I escape the harsh
Wyoming winter by headquartering in the beautiful Oak Creek area south of Sedona.
It's been a productive time but spring begins next Tuesday and I'll be migrating north
with the birds. I'll miss my daily walks and photo sessions along the Oak Creek trail,
but I also miss the Wind River Mountain Range and the Popo Agie River that runs by
my Wyoming studio.
Below is a recent clay block in of a Great Blue Heron in progress. One of my goals
while in Arizona this year was to experience the magnificent bird in the wild and collect reference material. Mission accomplished! At right is the Oak Creek trail in winter.
