Peaches and Blue

I am taking Jane Davenport's class Supplies Me

I painted the paper with gesso,
used prismacolor pencil, a blending exercise.
The background is done in inktense sticks and then a water brush taken to it.

some of you may know Abigail

It was her birthday yesterday
we shared a lovely day in Glacier National Park on Lake McDonald

she has always wanted a cuff
so I made this for her

there is something so special about making gifts for people we love

our hearts pour into the gift
filling it with treasures of light and love to bless their lives

I think it might actually be a gift to ourselves to fill gifts with love!

Happy Birthday Abigail!

Mouse Friend

they are kin


Summer can be full to overflowing in the NW of Montana,
a time to do outdoor things that our long winters do not support.

One thing I have done is help Larry work on his tiny log cabin. 
Staining windows:

 pre-chinking logs:

while he chalked around the corners of logs

so fun to see his cabin come to life!
