Whew! What a week!

Aanii!  I know a lot of you folks don’t like talking about the weather but dudes when its 20 degrees C., at the end of September, out here on the range, with the salmon splashing about, the horses out back eating the apples, the snakes sunning, and the crickets doing that cricket thing:  WOW!  This truly is the place to be and lets thank the almighty we’ve been out here, in the woods, on the fields. and in the river, through it.  That calls for a capital MIIGWETCH!

Here is a photo of sunrise just a few short days ago!

new work: new ideas.

Halloo there!  Thursday afternoon early evening on the wind swept range, its cold out there!  We might need a blaze right here in the wood stove tonight!  Imagine that.

Well anyway, I started playing around with the sketches the other day and came up with this.  Its on a 9×12″ canvas board but lets use our imaginations and think about this one on a 24×36 inch canvas.  Or lets think about it as a component of a larger composition, say chapter 2 in the Mishomis Book:  Original Man walks the Earth.  You know that story?

Well we sure do know the story of 13 years ago today.

so long to summer

Aanii.  So here it is, Sept. 3, 2014.  My daughter jumped on the school bus this morning, day one in Grade 7.  They rolled off into the early morning mist and are gone.  I turned around, walked down to the river, took off my shoes, rolled up my pant legs and walked in.  Here is a photo from that scene.
