Sacred Heart Church

This is a "distressed property." Sacred Heart was a thriving local Catholic church until the wicked ways of the larger church caught up to it. Congregations have fled to other denominations and the Diocese has consolidated parishes and sold off buildings to pay the legal bills.
What will become of Sacred Heart? It's for sale --it would seem. Generations of rabbits, squirrels, sparrows and untold other creatures call it home. It's very quiet inside. It has many, many stories to tell.

Residency

A new heron has taken up shop at the dam. I hope to befriend it as time goes on.
We'll see. My little project!

Jackson Hole sketches

I saw a few mountains when I was out in Jackson, Wyoming a few weeks ago. I could draw there for weeks on end. The scenery is spectacular and exotic.
I was in Jackson to visit the public schools and present "Owl Sees Owl" to Kindergartners and 1st Graders on behalf of the Bull-Bransom Award and the National Museum of Wildlife Art. It was a truly wonderful experience that I am still absorbing.
