A Salute to Our National Mammal




While I was on the road recently, it was announced that we now have a “National Mammal”, the American Bison. As I participate in art shows and festivals throughout the Midwest, I constantly find that the American Bison tends to be a popular choice of my show clients.  In a salute to this wonderful animal, […]

As the free-ranging Bison forage for food, they swing their large, muscular heads side-to-side to remove snow from the […]

With snow amounts heavy in […]

Yellowstone’s Winter Wonderland




Today’s post includes some more images made along our ride in the snowcoach, from Mammoth Hot Springs to Old Faithful, during the winter of 2011. These images were made near/along the Firehole River, as we neared the Old Faithful area. This area has a lot of thermal pools and geysers in the area and thus […]

And with this post, I’m back online. When our winter storm went through Friday/Saturday, we received a good coating of ice, followed […]
