Las Cruces, NM

We are visiting Las Cruces, NM and I was so happy to meet with fellow blogger, inspired artist and perfectly lovely Julie Ford Oliver! As we are traveling this winter in our RV, and headed to Arizona, I wanted to reach out to Julie and see if we could meet. 

She was completely welcoming with a wonderful studio tour, visit to one of her galleries M Phillip's Fine Art Gallery and we met up again for lunch at one of her favorite spots in Las Cruces to talk about art, goal setting and so much we have in common.  Julie has a love for all things avian and since this bird was nesting in the tree right outside my window, I know I had to paint her.
In gratitude for your generosity and the time we spent discussing ART, thank you Julie! 


  1. Hello Anne, I have no idea how I missed this one. What a beautiful complement you paid me - thank you. I truly enjoyed our time together and thank you for making the time.
    I have always admired your work but after meeting you, I admire the person you are just as much. That is a great dove painting and the angle makes it very dramatic. fabulous!

  2. So remarkable this blogging world- that led me to your work and then to meet you. I consider myself most fortunate!
