Toy Story I

I have a very special bookshelf, made by a local artist out of Diamond Willow, and it is loaded with many of my favourite “reads” of all time.  The top shelf however, is devoted to an assortment of “toys” that have come to reside with me over the years.  Mostly these are gifts, some (the wooden zebra and the handmade Melissa Weiss bear) I bought for myself. My theory is that it’s important to own and celebrate our inner child. Wouldn’t you agree?

Ranchos Christmas

Ranchos de Taos Church, again.  This is the third time I’ve painted this landmark for my blog.  Soon the most photgraphed church in N. America will also be the most painted.  There’s nothing like the brilliant clear light of Northern New Mexico on ancient adobe walls

Sharp Tail in Winter

Occasionally, when we get deep snow here, the Sharp Tail come into my yard to feed on the Russian Olives.  They perch way out on flimsy-looking limbs, and with their feathers all fluffed up for warmth, they look ridiculously unsafe there. Such beautiful birds,  they’re only one of several species of upland birds we’re privileged to have here.  This one is actually a guest at my cousin’s ranch, down on the Montana border, where the beautiful and increasingly rare Sage Grouse also shares territory.
