Over the weekend I did a painting demo at Earth Angels Studios in Florida, NY. People really liked the chickadees. But I feel like more people were impressed that I could paint sideways. :D Almost finished! What a great audience! Including online friends via Facebook live for @jensearthangels and other pages. More of my art at her gallery, which is in an old ice house.
I want to share some photos from a couple years ago near Key West, Florida at the botanical gardens and also Hemingways Florida home. If I am feeling down, I could just say the name of this tree "Blolly" and I would feel a smile form on my face. Lots of greenery here. And up here. Here is the Hemingway house at Key West, FL. Hemingway House kitchen (I painted a picture of this.) One of the many Hemingway cats. (I also painted this!)
While on the ranch last week in Idaho, I took some photos of our border collie and corgi moving some cows. They are not highly trained but especially the border collie does a pretty good job of helping out. Max, the corgi is more of the ranch mascot. Running fast. To the corrals.
I drove a four-wheeler and hiked up to a cabin in the woods right on the Continental Divide between Montana and Idaho. There is an old abandon goldmine and old cabins up there. People keep the cabin stocked with provisions of sorts. It's really a place forgotten in time.
