pend d’oreille winery


If you ever find yourself in North Idaho, specifically Sandpoint, I recommend the pend d’oreille winery. As you can see from the photo I posted, even their bike rack is a piece of art!

It is a charming bistro with a lot of good food wine and beer. We enjoyed live local music the last time we popped in for dinner. Their grilled sourdough bread is so delicious.

I am including a link to their website if you want to know more!

Western Shadows III

This is the third bison skull painting in the series of “Western Shadows”. As I type this it dawns on me I’ve adopted the Led Zeppelin naming method… which means that number IV will be the most popular and this one will be my personal favorite… tangent!

This painting is 18″x18″ acrylic on plexiglass. I’ve developed some very heavy textures on the back of this piece as you can see there are interesting crater shapes and extensive cracks that catch the light. I’m taking a very basic subject, one that I adore, and experimenting with different ways to visualize it. I am currently working on the fourth one so before long I will be able to have all four up on the site for comparison.

Lulu decide to come by the photo cube and inspect the progress, she didn’t have much to say. But what is there to say?
