“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
Mark Twain

So, corollary to personal artistic endeavors, art appreciation has always been a big part of my life. Major exhibitions have many times readily supplied the catalyst for trips within Texas and to the rest of the US, Europe, and Japan… I have been extremely fortunate to be able to travel quite a bit, and while I could use up an entire website rattling on about the places I’ve seen, I won’t. Instead, here are some random photos of places I’ve been and only slightly less random links to interesting things at interesting places.  What follows is a smattering of photos from my travels and a less than comprehensive, highly biased, and by no means complete listing of places I recommend.
