Big Bend National Park
A few weeks ago I packed my car up with art supplies, camping gear and snacks and hit the road. My ultimate destination was Starry Night Residency in Truth or Consequences, NM but the trip out there was an adventure in itself. Before showing up in T or C my round about route led me to visit 3 national parks, 1 national forest and experience many inspiring hours of the changing landscape.The mileage count was impressive and would have been daunting if I had taken time to tally how much time I would be spending on the road to get to the residency.
But the time flew by as my mind soaked in the beautiful forms and open sky in front of me as I drove.The creative wheels were already turning when I pulled out of the driveway. As I go further and further from home I felt my mind relax and let go of the minutia that so easily fills it up in the business of my life. The vast expanses soothed my mind and allowed me to get into a creative zone. My first stop was Big Bend. From there I went on to visit Carlsbad Caverns, Lincoln Forest and White Sands. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect transition into two weeks of art and inspiration.
