    Yes up until Nov then I took a job in Denver that didn't work out...I do miss the spring show that is unfolding now but I have a cousin in Philly who sends me a lot of pictures.
    All things considered I would rather be here. Better quality of life. And I don't miss the family drama that was making me sick.

    Its funny how they call it jumping cholla. It doesnt jump at all. It has barbed spines that can pierce through leather boots, jeans, skin, cow hide. I've seen youtube vids of guys who fell in it. Its incredibly painful to remove...anyway here's anothdr sketch I did...I'll post em as I do em.

    I'm planting a fence of cactus around my property. I'm trying to get as many species as I can find. I've got around 7 so far. There is some purple prickly pear cactus that is native to texas, but I'd have to take a road trip to get some.

    I go on vacation next month and I plan on digging up some native plants for the yard. The yucca trees have just started coming up a few miles down the highway too.

    Nope...only thing I do wit my left hand is...well, never mind.

    I read about relocating cactus...you must situate it facing the same exposure...don't fully understand why...so if you dug up a plant leaning west it must be planted the same way.
    I really like those purple prickly pears. Here's some from my garden.

    Here's some art from the gallery I'm working in. I didn't create it. Its mesquitewood with turquiose inlay. Very pricey stuff but beautiful.

    Do you dabble in anything else? Oils, pencils, ink, digital?
