What an AWESOME city! Thank you, Dallas, and to my hosts, for a great stay as I worked on capturing photographs and a study for my next portrait commission. It was well worth the trip in order to meet and get to know this client and his family. They were very gracious, and the trip could not have been better.

I was also able to tour the beautiful campus of Southern Methodist University and the Meadows Art Museum. This museum captures one of the largest collections of Spanish art outside of Spain. I saw works from Joaquin Sorolla, Francisco Jose de Goya, and Eduardo Chicharro, among others. At the end of my tour, I came across the portrait of the founder of this museum, Algur H. Meadows by Everett Raymond Kinstler, whom I greatly admire. What an inspiring time, and a great trip, as well.
