Six Sunsets in Sedona:
Plan your escape for a seven-day, six-night retreat guaranteed to recharge your batteries in the Arizona desert. Donated by Doug and Kristi Johnson, the beautiful four (4) bedroom, two-bath home is nestled on a half acre of heavily wooded, wonderfully landscaped grounds, with eight separate outdoor decks and patios--accessible from nearly every room. The home features vaulted tongue and groove ceilings with massive 16-inch thick beams throughout and two separate living areas. The chef's kitchen is complete with a gas stove/oven, ceramic cookware, knotty alder cabinets, and elegant granite with a rock face finish. A private courtyard includes a large spa. The home accommodates up to eight guests.

"My most recent body of work, "Suspended Reality" began with paintings of birds floating in a perched pose on a simple and serene background that is the skies over Boise, with no other information.
As the work progressed, foreground information began to find its way into the composition. Soon other objects were included to interact with the birds or sometimes on their own to help tell the story. Eventually, they have become full landscape compositions combined with elements of still life and surrealism. I have chosen to float the subject in the center of the piece to create a compelling contrast from the landscape. In addition, I have cast a shadow from the focal points onto the background to add depth and create a slight confusion in the two-dimensional plane.
Although birds are often the focus of my work, the true inspiration comes from the English language. I am drawn to words or phrases that strike a chord and I try to express them visually, often breaking them down into a very literal portrayal.
Each concept starts with the title which has become integral in explaining the imagery. Some are quite simple and straight forward, while others are more obscure and thought-provoking. There is a sense of humor to the work, but I strive to create beautiful works that will stand on their own artistic merit. The inspiration and ideas are coming faster than I can paint them, almost taking on a life of their own. I envision the work evolving to include more socially conscious subject matter."- Randy Van Dyck

Art from Todd Van Fleet
No bike should spend its life on the sidewalk. That's why Todd Van Fleet rescues bikes.
"Snapping the shutter is the easy part. Finding bikes is where the real adventure begins."
Todd rescues old cruiser bikes from the corners of barns, sheds, and attics then straps them to his back and hikes to far-flung, lonely landscapes giving each bike a story in a photo.
Todd's bold and whimsical scenes have earned him a spot as one of the nation's leading lifestyle photographers.
