Taos in the Early Spring

March is upon us here in Taos  and Touchstone Inn is getting ready to start greening up! The first flowers that arrive are our tulips, then our iris and day lilies. We need some help thinning out the iris in the labyrinth so let us know when you arrive if you would like to take a plant home with you. I planed them about 15 years ago and they are very healthy and very hearty. Brad and the gang took out all of the juniper bushes on the backside of the house and will soon be working on seeding grass. It looks fabulous!

Mitch Lyons

Mitch Lyons Clay Monoprinting Workshop Date to be announced Painter?     Potter?    Printmaker? Mitch Lyons is not an artist who fits neatly into the established art categories.  A potter turned printmaker, he has not abandoned clay, but has expanded the possibilities into another medium – that of printmaking. “Viewing Mitch Lyons’ prints could be compared to viewing the interior walls of an old house being demolished, when layers of paint and wallpaper reveal the stratum of lives lived, lives changed, and the elements of time and history.” Fibre Arts Australia About Mitch...
