A quickie watercolor sketch and fond memory of last week’s trip to Sedona and @mii_amo_spa with @indagaretravel and @elizabethlesser This was done on my last day hike up to #kachinawoman and the #warrior (right). An even quickier one I did to test colors and composition is at swipe left. Sometimes I like those better. More spontaneous and fresh. .

Was so taken by the divine and dainty(ish) bling worn by the even more divine and stylish @arossgirl , who could make bailing twine and barbwire look chic. Gorgeous scarabs, moonstones and opals by @darlenedesedle and other juicy grms from @pippasmalljewellery recently shot to fame in the favor of Meghan Markle Winsdor, Duchess of Sussex.

Am working away on next book #californiacookingandsouthernstyle and when my concentration wanes, I paint. This was from a photo I took a few years ago when His Grace and I visited this lovely vineyard and farm in Tuscany, whose proprietor was also winemaker and chef. I am missing her name alas, and the estate’s. If anyone recognizes this please lmk! 12 x 16, oil on canvas board. .

So beautiful it’s almost corny. (Keep swiping ☺️) The red rocks of #sedona as seen from #miiamo. Soaking in the wisdom of author and teacher @elizabethlesser and for a few days of healing and rest and friendship. .

… and the moon rises above another year. I wish you all good health and good hearts and laughter and peace. My deepest thanks for your warm, funny, fun, and abiding community here on Instagram. I consider you all friends or friends I’ve yet to make, and I count my blessings… This photo is from the last full moon of 2018, rising over Foxen Canyon Road, in our beloved valley.
