I'm still at it, as you can see. I took a picture of these pears from my only pear tree and have painted them once or twice. I think they turned out quite nice this time.
Today I went to the opening of the New Mexico Family Advocacy Center in downtown Albuquerque. This is a huge, brand new one-stop center for all forms of violence against women and children; domestic, child abuse, rape, etc. It is truly a unique facility - it has exam rooms, forensic rooms, play rooms, housing the police department on one side and everything else on the other. The service is absolutely free and the victim chooses which services she wants. One of my big sunflower paintings is hanging in the lobby right as you walk in. What a great support for New Mexico women and children!
