Why we live in Wyoming!

My good friend Marjorie sent me this little Poem of truths.We both wish we wrote it.

It's winter in Wyoming
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At twenty-five below.
Oh, how I love Wyoming
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave Wyoming
'Cause I'm frozen to the ground.

What's Cookin' in 2008

Click on image to enlarge.This is how I describe my new web page on the Northernfront( see or links to the right) The things on the stove top are what I'm on about right now and the canisters on the shelf are what I've been doing for the past couple of decades. I had to put some things on the shelf to make room on the stove but that doesn't mean I can't reach up and grab one of those canisters from time to time. Maybe next year I'll be cookin' up something new.

G'day! I've just signed up for a page on a very nice virtual art gallery know as the Northern Front; brain child of prominent Laramie artist Terry Reid.Actually Terry describes it as follows......" Gallery of the Northern Front: Contemporary Art of the West/ a digital portfolio and resume service for professional artists." The page will help people figure out exactly what I'm up to in my cocoon studio here on the ranch. It will help me also to figure out what I'm up to which is quite a feat in itself. Right now it is a work in progress and my challenge is to create a description of the page in as 'concise' a manner as possible. First of all I have to come up with 'tags'. So please bear with me while I brainstorm.
Children's Literature, Children's books,Children's illustration, Picture books, illustration, writing for children, cartoons and caricature, commissions, paintings, oil pastel, mixed media, equine art, horses, humor, murals, humorous poetry, Australia, storytelling, didgeridoo playing, belly dancing, Greek culture, roodroppings. That's enough for now. Go check out 'the Front' at while your waiting for my personal page to gestate. Stay tuned for the birth.
