Hi guys, I'm in transit at the moment - stuck in Melbourne Australia because my plane to New Zealand got cancelled due to fog. Such is life. Thought I'd use the spare time to make this highlights video for you of my adventures in the US. I apologise for the shaky camera - it's all shot on the iphone because I didn't want to take my proper video camera with me. Still, there are some great memories in there.

Really looking forward to getting home now.

Richard, thanks so much for posting your video of your trip.  It's so inspiring!   The event looked so rich!..in landscape and talent!  You have a lifetime of photos to paint from.  I painted a few pieces from my son's rafting trip photos on the Colorado.  I wish I had your fluid style with those scenes.  It's very impressive what you did in such a short time.  Thanks again for sharing your experiences!

Thanks everyone - very nice to be home but it was an amazing trip for me.

Thanks Amanda glad you saw the rest of it too. I paid the $150 to get some more leg room on the 16 hour flight to Melbourne - well worth it in my case. Had a great time with you guys, nice having dinner together too. Good times.

Hi Richard, really enjoyed the video it brought it all back. We just got back last night it was a lot of driving but well worth it. We went on to Zion and Bryce, very spectacular. I am wondering if you got the upgrade you were hoping for on the way back. Enjoyed getting to know you, David and Barbara at the Grand Canyon. Cheers!

heebie-jeebies I guess you did not like the heights?  Hot and dry? Must have been after I left.........: ))

Can't believe that you are not home yet.  Your wife and children are going to be so happy to see you.  What a journey you have taken...........dor:))

So cool you were at the Grand Canyon, Richard. Photos can never do it justice... when one actually stands there, it's overwhelming! Thanks for the video and paintings!

Thanks Richard, I'd forgotten those heebie-jeebies. I'd sure love to go back there some day. You must be thrilled, looked like a wonderful trip and convention. I did my own road trip out of Vegas 15 yrs ago, I must go back.

Thanks so very much for producing and posting this video. I was totally enthralled viewing it.

While watching, I realized I'd never been to Red Rocks park, not to mention the Grand Canyon, though I live relatively close. Now I've got to go.
