Re: R2R Travelogue 2: Navajo Nation and Canyon de Chelly

Howdy sir roleerob! What another great day of site seeing! Marvelous wonders to behold too. Very fascinating country. Where did you buy the painting, at that little place along Hwy 77?
I'm so enjoying this wondeful trip!

No, @janton ...

"Where did you buy the painting, at that little place along Hwy 77?"

... I bought it from the artist at the White Hose Overlook. He was out there in that incredible cold and said he'd been out there all day!

Thanks for stopping by and glad to know you are enjoying "riding along" with me. 😉

oh I see..that is amazing, I didn't realize the artist was right there at that spot, well you had to be a real blessing to him! I love that. is he the only person you saw out there? I mean, it looked like the place was deserted. Didn't have to worry about crowds or people getting in any shots. lol.That was a great post!

Yes @janton, he was very honest and genuine. Offered a discount and I said I would pay full price. A little anxious as it was just he and I going back to my truck for the cash, but he posed no threat...

Then didn't have exact amount and he had no change (no sales all day ... 😔). When home, I will mail him the rest, with an encouraging note.

howdy today sir roleerob! oh that is so interesting. So you got his mailing address in case of any contact in the future also. I like that deal. Was he a struggling young artist? Was he Navajo I assume?

Yes @janton he was Navajo, although I would be hard pressed to say how old he was. Pretty weathered face, but seemed young at heart!

He had his name and address on the back of his picture, so easy to follow through on my commitment.
