The Kolden Report:Good things come to those who wait, Part One, March 29, 2013

Hello, kids!
 
I have been busy and have lots to cover so let's dive right in by welcoming the new subscribers! Enjoy the ride and feel free to share the Kolden Report as you wish. 
 
Tomorrow, I hang my show at The Gallery in Glendive, Montana at 109 North Merrill Ave.   I have been working feverishly on new pieces and am quite pleased with the results.   Admission to The Gallery is free and they are open Monday through  Friday, 12-4 and by appointment, (406)-377-6508.   
 
The Gallery reception is Sunday, April 7th at 1pm and you are all invited.    I love nothing more than chatting with those who share my passion for Northeast Montana!  Also, I am going to be drawing for prizes at the end of April, so please stop by when you can, see the show, tour the museum or shop for that perfect gift and sign up to win! 
 
Now, on to the report!
 

 
Ethereal Case.  (Frost crystals look bizarre in the frigid morning air!)
 

 
Mud flat or Missouri river, just before dawn?
 

 
Red sky in morning....  (Have I mentioned how THRILLED I am to be commuting in day light?)
