Desert Journey 1935- Private Collection
I'm currently working on lots of different projects, writing some articles and also creating some art of my own and returning to my love of photography. I'll be heading up to Tehachapi next week to shoot stills and B-roll for an upcoming project, can't wait to experience one of Maynard Dixon's favorite places, and hopefully see some of the color and clouds that he loved and painted so beautifully.
Next month, my first documentary, Maynard Dixon Art and Spirit, will be screened as part of the Palm Desert Art Documentary series. The event takes place at the UCR Palm Desert Auditorium at 6pm on Thursday, April 18th. I'll be there for a Q&A after, and hope to meet some new Dixon fans and see my desert friends... especially Dixon's son, John and his wonderful wife, Lee. They have been such great supporters of this film, and we have enjoyed a wonderful friendship since we first met back in 2001!
The film is being shown in conjunction with Desertscapes 2013. For more
