My heart and me in Cajun Country #1
Today I am at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in Lafayette, Louisiana starting the process of hanging my show. I had to laugh, they are expanding and it's under construction. Those of you familiar with my work know my predilection for construction sites so it's entirely appropriate.
I am staying with some good Cajun friends. I hope to combine working on the show with some fishing, birding and dancing so be prepared...
