Hello, kids!

and fused glass- at Garfield Bank.

Creeks - at Circle Credit Union.
 
*Tom Colhurst- Circle,MT- carved works made from old ceder fence posts - at Joanne's Boutique.
 
And ME, at Prairie Pickin's.
 
Businesses will remain open until 6pm to give folks a chance to come on out and view our art.  Come see us, if you can.  We'll leave the light on....
 
In other news, lady luck has again smiled upon me.  I had ANOTHER piece accepted into a Portland, Oregon Gallery!  Life IS GOOD!
 
And now, a short report. 
 

 
Regal eagle.  (Seems to favor this particular tree).
 

 
Rugged river. 
 

 
Shape shift.  The air hole shoreline is in a constant state of flux.
 

 
Red sky at night.
 

 
Clear channel. 
 

 
Ahhhhhhhh, moment.
 

 
Heaven let your LIGHT shine down!
 
I am relieved that the days grow longer.  It's difficult for me to be able to photograph my world when it's dark when I leave for work and again when I drive home!  I can almost feel my soul let out a squeal of delight at the thought of capturing the sun breaking the horizon above the river or setting over town as I leave.  The thought of foggy mornings and cloudy eves, thrill me and after a winter's slow down I find myself primed and ready.
