“Wesson Dogwatch” Moapa, NV

As an early 50th birthday present, we decided to add a little more chaos into our lives back in January. Wesson is a German Short Hair Pointer just like his 3 older brothers. He is sibling to our 2 year old, Sig. They have the same mom.

“With my Big Brothers” Moapa, NV

He LOVES running, jumping, playing, chasing rabbits and catching lizards. He has brought such joy and laughter to these “dark days” that we are all facing.

Sending you Happy Wishes, Bright Smiles and Wild Free Inspirations for your day!

Love, De

My apologies for being absent from here for so long. I have truly missed checking in and visiting with you all.

The full time job, long commute each day, and now the current situation that we all find ourselves in, has kept me beyond busy.  I am now currently teaching from home, which has become longer hours than being in the actual classroom. As everyone is settling into their new way of life, balancing the home and work is starting to find a middle ground. I am excited to share with you what I have been doing in my Google classroom………another day …..

As for my post today, it is from Logandale Trails, NV. About a year ago I posted a blog about the Valley of Fire, NV, this is the back side of that range. The only way to access it is with a 4 wheel drive vehicle. My husband recently had a birthday, his present was a new toy, featured in the photos. I am so excited to be able to explore new places and share those places with you!

Before this turns into a book, I am going to sign off for today.

Hope you all are doing well, safe, and healthy.

Peace, Fresh Air and NEW Inspirations for your day!

Love, De

Gallery Ready

“Keep Going” 20×26 Canvas & mixed media

Enjoying a break from the full time teaching job, creating some new pieces, and preparing to enter a few pieces for the gallery show and local venues for display.

This particular canvass was “completed” last year, however, it  never quite felt complete to me. Pulling it back out for a second look, adding a few more layers of elements, materials and media,

like the title says “Keep Going”

is now ready for a Gallery debut !

Sending you wishes for a “keep going second look” inspirational day!

Love, De
