Trip to Indio

A poem by Richard Wolfson inspired by our road trip to Indio, CA for an arts festival.


Richard and I are headed for the Southwest Art Festival, Jan. 26-29, Indio California. Today as we traveled through inclement weather, Richard was inspired to write a quick poem.

Neither rain nor snow
nor alternative facts
Can keep an artist from a show
And that’s the truth Jack
–Richard Wolfson

Richard is my chief collaborator, in my art and in life. Over the years, his poetry has found its way into my art. His poetry is featured on my handmade greeting cards and on my wall art.Vicki Bolen and Richard Wolfson holding dog outdoors

Our trips to art fairs provide a great opportunity to sell new products and obtain customer feedback so I can fine-tune new products before posting them in my Etsy and Redbubble online stores.

Author: Vicki Bolen, Little Bird de Papel

I am a paper artist living and creating in Albuquerque, NM. Working with paper to create art gives me an appreciation for the beauty and cultural significance of this versatile material. I began by folding origami cranes, and over the years my work has evolved to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and mono prints. Each piece gives me the opportunity to create something useful while expressing myself artistically. I attend numerous art and crafts festivals throughout the country because my intent is to share the joy I experience in making art. My artwork is also available through my Etsy and Redbubble shops.
