A Lovely Artists Statement :)

Hello my Darlin Dears, the curious meadow creatures who like to try to nest with my chickens & those helpful (as always) gnomes whom "Borrowed my last two jars of strawberry jam,

Miss Lamb your more Bear than Rabbit farmer here,

At the lovely show on friday...this lovely friday at Visions in the Paseo... I shall not only be displaying lots of fanciful captures, but as per any show, a lovely Artist Statment:)

For my lovely Blog Readers, I have decided to go ahead & post it right here for you all to read:)

Enjoy my loves!!:)

“More Bear Than Rabbit, More Rabbit Than Bear:
Captures From A Pathless Meadow Of A Mind”

We are all born with qualities of The Woodland in our personality, demeanor and in the way we speak sweet and light words. As if in our nature, we also seek out these same qualities through the day.

In my exploration of human nature, we are inclined to adorn the already wonderful images of our day with the fanciful. Where could our breaths that turn into the stories of our days could have grown, but from the fields of Wheat and Barley? What sweet bird of song would not want to share your table of milk or palette of honey? I haft to ask myself, did I wake this early morn feeling more like the Rabbit of the meadow or the Bear of the forest?
“More Bear Than Rabbit, More Rabbit Than Bear” is a still moment of captured truth, framed in raw wood. A truth that is unspoiled by the perfection that leys prey to time and the wicked, all cast against the pathless meadow of a mind. Each image contains not only a reflection of our own lifeline, but braids it with the permanence of the natural world. The light dappled through trees and then felt upon ones face might not be just light, but a quality of warmth and goodness we seek fervently.

A girl that is raised by wolves would not look upon one with fear, just because that is what is expected. She first looks at it’s eyes and will see a reflection of her own. A whole-heart cannot be found unless you have given it up to nature to fill.


Lovely Lovely:) I hope you enjoyed it:)

Are any of you folks coming to the show?:)

I send you each a hug:)

Buck Beak...the bird of my heart:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, the furry meadow creatures who are being drawn out of hibernation by this odd out of season sunshine and the Gnomes who are off visiting some friends in France… I told them to bring me back a mountain (So who knows how they will interpret that…they are magical…for Christmas they brought me a Red Wood Forest),

Miss Lamb your tree climbing and sunrise adorning farmer here,

There is a Bird that was born here at Early Bird Acres,

A very special bird that despite having a small disability, can love more and say more than most birds.... It may be the smallest of the birds, but also the funniest:)

Meet Buck Beak:)

Buck Beak is actually a girl... she follows me to my car... she stares at me through windows and is always the first out of the coop.... she is very quick:)

She also always hast to know what is going on with my captures:)

Just the other day, she tried to follow me into the milk barn, but was then frightened by the big cows:)

Very precious:)

I just wanted to give you folks the opportunity to meet this precious bird:) & be looking for more on her:)

Large quilts, churned butter & wide open windows,

Yours Truly,
