October Ramblings

Home after the summer run.  It was a good season and we are gearing up to show at Frontier Mall for the holidays.

 I don’t know if other artists go through the after the season blahs.. I don’t know what to make, I worry the customers won’t like what I do, question where my artwork is heading.  I make lists of requests, ideas, take some time to work on our online presence...I just don’t feel very creative or productive and the clock is ticking..  I will pay for my indecisiveness when I see my inventory..

Summer Fun

A quick shot of a bit our lives.  This is how Denny and Brandy get around.  Once in a while I get to join them!

Memorial Day 2017

Happy Memorial Day!  Hope everyone is enjoying a weekend of fun and cookouts.  We are doing Brats and hotdogs, family and the Indy 500.  Life is pretty laid back right now.

We are packing for our summer run.  A disarray of boxes and trying to remember what we left and what we need to bring.  Den is taking the first load and the boat up in the morning.  Hopefully getting the house ready for the puppy.  She is into everything so how can you be ready!?!   Lol

Rainbow Bridge

Yesterday we picked up our new puppy, her name is Brandy.  It was very emotional as it was filled with puppy joyfulness and remembering Abby.   As we were driving home with Brandy, we saw 2 rainbows.  It brought to mind the story of the Rainbow Bridge..  I feel it was a sign from Abby , she wanted to give us her blessing. I tear up whenever I read it. If you are not familiar with the story , it is as follows:

Life after Abby

AbbyIt has been a hard winter around here.. in February we had a run of bad luck, things just not going well, little accidents  one right after the other,, a deer took after Abby, Denny's lip had a run in with a gate, etc etc.   Then ... we lost our Abby.. due to a freak accident, I will spare you the details.  It was heartbreaking and still hurts deeply.  The house has been quiet and I have missed my walking partner.  I know there are many of you out there, that knew and loved her as we did.  She did not lack friends in our crazy life!

Online changed

 We are looking toward the future and have decided to make a few changes.  I have decided to promote my nicer pieces to a few galleries.   At this time, I will not be offering the wildlife online, they will be available through the galleries or by contacting us personally.    These pieces can be seen in the portfolio section as well as the Yellowstone collection.  I enjoy creating these gorgeous pieces and will continue to offer them at art shows that we participate in.

Aspirin desensitization

As many of you know, I have a few health issues.   This past week I have been in Denver at National Jewish hospital.  They are a top notch facility dealing with respiratory, allergy issues.  I have met people from all over the world, some very ill.  It has made me appreciate the road I personally have taken to improve my health.

Crazy Horse

Crazy horseWhat a great week this has been!  We arrived home from a successful summer run early last week.  Have been busy unpacking and enjoying family and friends.  

Yankton Riverboat Days

We have arrived in Yankton!  We will be booths 107 and 108.  Come join the fun and celebration of this wonderful annual event.  Fireworks, fine crafts, parades and numerous shows and events.  Such a great place along the banks of the Missouri River.

Behind the scenes

Hanging by my torch is this collection  of beads I have made over time.   They have imperfections, they provide me with inspiration , color Combinations and designs when I reach the dreaded artists block.    Just giving you a peak behind the scenes.i
