Brother crow announces brother wolf’s entrance into the clearing

May 13th, 2012 2 comments

Wolves are one of the most important predators in North America. Overzealous farmers almost wiped them out, but then it was discovered that wolves keep elk and deer populations healthy by weeding out the sick and the injured ones and their presence keeps the population of coyotes at bay as well. Wolves are wonderful animals, great mothers, and have great family structures, with the whole family taking care of the alpha pair’s cubs. I hope we humans can figure out a way to share our world with brother wolf, and other great animals, all of which are losing more ground every day.

Donald’s Dream – the Hunter

March 4th, 2012 27 comments

I don’t know about you, but when someone wants to tell me about their dream, I get uncomfortable, because most dreams are utterly boring to anyone except the dreamer. So when my husband started telling me about this dream, my initial reaction vanished as his tale unfolded. I took a deep breath and sat down because this was no ordinary dream. As he narrated the story, images filled my mind and I already knew I was going to have to paint a picture to show what he described. Here is my painting, and if you’d like to read the story/dream, it is incredibly beautiful. My husband has a blog where he imparts his wit and wisdom. Lately he has been writing about his battle with cancer, so this healing dream is particularly beautiful in that regard. Please leave a comment if you visit his website, he loves a little attention!

ps you’ll find another dog painting that goes along with the story on his blog as well.
