Sunrise Pronghorn

Precious to me is our Pronghorn,  I think  because they’ve been part of my life since I can remember. 
I so admire their determination to persevere despite the fact that they’re ill equipped for our winters, or for the constant encroachment by development, on their habitat and migratory paths. 
This little painting suggests that speaking for myself,  the sun rises and sets on them.

Power of the Horse

To the Navajo People, the horse represents power.  If you’ve ever had anything to do with horses, I’m sure you agree.  Next time you’re around a horse, notice how your tiredness melts away, your spirits rise and your troubles melt away.

Olive and the Moon

All this symbolism lately and here I am painting full moons with eagles and rising suns with trees.  DUH! What about an owl and a SUPER moon?!  No brainer, right?!   To affirm all of that, I just arrived home after a drive home from the hills under…..you guessed it…2012’s fabulous “Super Moon”.

Rocks & Trees

Today’s offering might be on the verge of abstract.   Often when on the phone or in a meeting,  I doodle fir trees and rocks.  My parents, while raising us on the prairie, made a concerted effort to get us to the mountains every summer.As Canadians I think that rocks and trees are part of our national psyche; after all, they constitute the landscape of probably 3/4 of this beautiful country.
