DAY 1 - Las Vegas, NV
ARTISTS FOR CONSERVATION #15 FLAG EXPEDITION, THAR: THE GREAT INDIAN DESERT
Sometime today I will post my first official, hopefully creative, blog post about my travel to India from 1 Nov 2016 to 11 Jan 2017.
I leave Las Vegas Nov 1 at about 3pm and arrive in Jodhpur India Nov 3 at 5:10pm.
I am grateful to the Artists for Conservation Foundation for their generous support of the AFC Flag Expedition #15, Thar: The Great Indian Desert which includes 2016 STEAM Global_India. The AFC Flag Expeditions Program is a unique program established and operated by the Artists for Conservation Foundation (AFC), making possible the artistic field study and rendering of unique, threatened habitats, and rare or endangered species deserving of greater public attention. For more information, visit www.artistsforconservation.org
Please visit the STEAM Global page to see what the project is all about. Also check out the rest of the site and visits the maps and our partners.
Wish me luck!

I paint, photograph, and speak about wild places in an act of reciprocity that is as vital to me as heartbeat or breath.
My interest in the magic and mystery of the natural world lies at the intersection of art and science.
Made possible through
the generosity of
Artists for Conservation
