Summer 2014 - Rest & Relaxation?
Brian Goodman


Summer 2014 / Rest & Relaxation?


It’s been a very busy summer for the Goodmans! Our 2-week road trip through California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona to participate in Art Santa Fe 2014 was a wonderful experience but of course had a few snags — a bit of a starter problem that we couldn’t get it repaired until after the 4th of July Holiday weekend, so we were stranded at the very beginning of our trip until that Monday. Then, Shira got sick, so our time on the road didn’t start out being much fun. But she was much better by the time we got to Santa Fe, and we ended up having a great time. Santa Fe is a wonderful, artsy city, and my work received a warm welcome there.


A week after returning home, Shira and I headed to what I refer to as “one of my happy places,” Gabriola Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Ten days of rest, relaxation, and fresh air – kicking back with good friends, good wine, a whale sighting, lots of laughter and lots of picture making.


After Gabriola, with hardly enough time to do the laundry and repack, we then headed to Maine for a seven day family retreat on Sebago Lake. More relaxation and fresh air (how much fresh air can an L.A. boy take?) in the beautiful and HUMID New England countryside — with family, more wine, lots of lobster and, of course, lots more picture making.
