With a Fan and a Strut

Animals. I love them. You know I do. I take pictures of animals all the time and try to remember to put them on this blog, a little ode to the littlest bits and the bigger bits that make me so happy to love.


On this blog you've seen horses like the gorgeous Reno:



Wild turkeys found on the Natchez Trace (one of my fav pictures I've ever taken!)







Kits. Because I love my cats.

I'm not ready for this yet, but I don't think I have much choice~ So, this weekend I'm looking forward to barricading myself in the studio for copious amounts of time. I have a date with a swanky piece of Arizona turquoise and I can't wait!

I'm also hoping to see a friend, someone I've been missing for four (4!) years. Yikes! That's a long time folks and I'm not really equipped to miss a person dear to me for that long.... are any of us? Sometimes you have no choice and your heart must deal and heal.


When I found out this person was near again, I immediately conjured this piece.






Because I thought the distance and space between us was near to being too far to be bridged. I'm so glad I was wrong.
