Feather Clan


the other day
at a farmer's market
i saw a little old man
perhaps 90 years of age and more
carrying two long feathers
so much taller than him
immediately i began this sketch
perhaps in another he was an elf

Original art for sale


last week I wandered Rocky Mountain Front
of Montana
where the prairies meet the mountains

I hiked each day
drove to a new canyon each day
found a lovely place to sit and create art each day


sometimes
i looked at the light
felt the air
felt peace and vitality
the wilderness supported this


glacial waters can be the color of the lady above


the green of moss and grass 
inspired the fairy sprite above

I have listed each of these original paintings
for sale in my etsy shop

Pink Lotus


with wings sprouting from the back of her heart
she rose from petals pink
a life of dancing on her toes
communing with butterflies
and all with wings

this is 6"x18"

lovely days
and nights
to you
