Paul & Cash

 Lots of guys like cars, motorycles or dangerous stunts.  Quite a few guys I know love horses, and Paul is one of those guys. Not only beautiful, but well-broke,  well equipped and lovingly tended horses. 

I think it was Winston Churchill who said “The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man.”  SOLD

Katherine & Chester @ Horse Thief Cave

Writing-On-Stone is a magical place, and a highlight on trail rides down there is Police Coulee.  What sounds quite innocent is revealed to be more like a canyon, and was the conduit for whiskey traders and horse thieves back & forth across the American line.  Here’s my friend Katherine and the famous Chester at Horse Thief Cave.  They have a thuggish look about them don’t you agree?

Breaks of the South Saskatchewan

 One of our greatest resources here in Canada is our wild rivers, and here in S. Alberta we are richly blessed with the Red Deer and S. Saskatchewan river systems. Sourced in the Rockies, they sprawl across the prairies, merging east of the Hat, and eventually emptying into Hudson’s Bay.  Mile upon endless mile of fantastic landscapes,  rich eco-systems, and life-giving water for all of us.

October Aspen

  This painting is from a photo I took out in the Cypress Hills, on the last golden day of last autumn.  It was one of those perfect, golden, warm, radiant fall days that we only get 4 or 5 of a year.  It must be angle the sun is hanging at in the south and the certain kind of dust in the air, but the light is radiant with colour, and every shadow is pink, violet, blue or green.  Every leaf shines like a coin; the sky  so blue, it hurts. On days like this, I feel it my duty as a human being, to ditch all my other jobs and get outside and enjoy.

Hoodoos; Writing-On-Stone

Writing-On-Stone is a magical place; a badland area on the Milk River in the far south  of the province.  A provincial park now, it is home to the largest collection of ancient petroglyphs in North America.  Hot and sunny in summer, and with a spectacular landscape, and the lovely Milk River sliding past,  it is a great place to visit.

Wild Skies Over the Old Schoolhouse

I was coming home from Elkwater one evening last summer, when this huge clash of weather systems happened overhead.  Known by the First Nations People as the “Thunder Breeding Hills”, the Cypress Hills were living up to their reputation that night!  The old schoolhouse has lived through many storms, winter AND summer, and this night had no new surprises for it.
