This is the stone carving done by Night Bird. We purchased it at the Indian Pueblo near Taos, New Mexico.

Earlier this year I wrote about our trip to Taos, New Mexico. Like all good tourists we visited the Indian Pueblo community near by. I purchased a stylized stone carving of a bear done by Night Bird. He allowed me to take his photograph and I used it to do a portrait in watercolor. Here is Night Bird.

For those readers living near by, I will be at East Ludington Gallery, Escanaba, MI on November 9 and 10. That same gallery will be having a Christmas Open House on November 20 and 21. Those not currently receiving the E newsletter from East Ludington gallery can send their email address to me and I will get you added to the mail list. The newsletter is the best way to stay informed about discounts and gallery festivities.

Sometimes in order to get to one of the trout streams I have to trudge through fields or swamps or... Sometimes the scenery is spectacular and sometimes it's just a nice day. This painting resulted from one such outing. The scene is a meadow with an old abandoned saw mill , now buried in a woods. I don't remember how the trout behaved that day but I do remember the weather was enjoyable.

I've been terrible about tending to my Bolg for sometime and realize that after telling about the gallery in Minocqua, WI I didn't add later that they also opened a gallery downstairs and it is named "Main StreetGallery." I have had some sales there so I hope they continue to do well and that area readers will stop by this fine gallery. Trout season ended this past week so perhaps my painting hours will increase. I have one new student and she shows great promise. There, that covers May to October all in one jumbled mess. I hope my future blogs are better written and they may even contain a new painting or two. Thanks for bearing with me!
