Back in the Saddle Again

It is amazing that I haven't posted to my blog in so long. I apologize. This year so far has passed like a dream. I made several out of town trips during the first few months of the year. My mother passed away in February and I was traveling quite a bit during that time.

I actually got to go to Kalispell, MT to a Wildlife Winter Workshop put on by the Triple D Game Farm and Julie Chapman. Julie is an extremely talented wildlife artist and it was a joy to learn from her. I took literally thousands of photos of cougars, snow leopards, bobcat, Canadian lynx, red foxes, wolves, Arctic foxes, Arctic wolves, raccoon, horses and a Siberian tiger. I hope I didn't forget any of the animals - there were so many of them. And they were all just beautiful against the glistening snow. I can see how it would be easy to become a workshop junkie!! I would love to repeat the experience on a monthly basis. But that would be a bit expensive and I would miss my family too much. Besides, I have enough photographic material now to keep me painting for a long time to come. I am working on four different paintings right now and have at least half a dozen more that I can't wait to begin. I will load a couple that I have finished recently.

Kindest regards,
