All paintings have been completed and shipped out to Sedona for next Friday's show. I am very excited to be back in Sedona among the red rocks. The drive up from Phoenix is one of my favorites as it's in the middle of prime Saguaro cactus country. Just a few more days. Hope to see you at the show!

This is the final painting for the one-man exhibition to be held next month in Sedona, Arizona at Lanning Gallery. It's a landscape in the New Mexico mountains during the autumn under full fall foliage. Aspen trees and whispering Aspen with distant mountains and evening sky. I enjoyed painting this one, I hope you like it. All the best... JH

I just wrapped the final painting for the one-man show in Sedona for next month. This year's show consists of a mix of landscapes and wildlife paintings. I think the collection is cohesive and will hopefully look great hanging on the walls at Lanning Gallery. I'll attach an image of the most recent wildlife painting I finished; "The Watcher". Tonight's final painting will be posted when it's imaged in the next few days. Cheers! JH

The San Juan Symphony Orchestra's performance of "A Season of Appreciation" was Amazing! The performance began with an inspired commissioned piece from San Cardon titled "Song of the Mountain Poets." Next came the Piano Concerto No. 3, Op. 37 by Beethoven (with Norman Krieger performing on piano.) The concert was concluded with Edward Elgar's "Enigma Variations (Variations on an Original Theme) Op. 36. The performances were flawless, inspiring and moving from beginning to end. I was honored to be a part of this years' "A Season of Appreciation." If you are ever in Durango, CO (and I highly suggest that you make plans to visit!) take the opportunity to experience the San Juan Symphony Orchestra. You will be moved and you will witness some magic on the mountains of southwest Colorado. -JH

I was fortunate enough to be asked to be the San Juan Symphony Orchestra's featured artist of 2011. I arrived in Durango yesterday and have had a marvelous time since my arrival. Yesterday I met with the director of the San Juan Symphony Orchestra, Kathy Myrick, and was given a tour of the arts center. Today I was part of the 'Diesel's and Easels' project. A Specialty Train For Artists, Art Lovers And History Buffs Collaborative Event Between The Durango Arts Center And The Durango And Silverton Narrow Gauge Train. The ride took us through some of the most beautiful scenery in southwest Colorado. I met some amazing artists, historians, fly fishing specialists and other wonderful people that made the day an amazing experience. The weather was perfect and the company was sublime. It could not have been better. Cheers!
