The Buck Stopped Here


If you like deer, watch "The Buck Stopped Here" This is a sweet little video of the deer on our homestead, guess who they like to visit?

Deer are plentiful on our homestead in Montana. We see them almost daily, and I write about our encounters in my books. This video shows some of the interactions they have with our horses. Our geldings will sometimes share their food and water with the deer. I believe one little doe thinks she is a horse. See more of our homestead life at

The Story Behind the Art- Golden Eagle

I'm often asked why I choose particular species for my wildlife paintings. In this new video series, "The Story Behind the Art" I share my personal experiences that lead me to create my artwork. Meet the Golden Eagle.

Thanks for watching, and if you want to learn more about our life on a rural mountain in the west, visit my website and enjoy my books, art, and videos.  If you care to leave a question or a comment, I do read them and respond.  😊

A Curtain can be a Work of Art

My Saturday project. I couldn't find a valance that was a good match for my curtain, so, I decided to paint one.
I made the valance out of a cotton material and I used acrylic paints thinned with water, so it wouldn't feel or look stiff. I love nature themes in home decor, but they are not easy to find.  I suppose necessity really is the mother of invention.

Since stores are not around the corner, I have learned a lot of skills to craft much of my decorative items.  If you are interested in more posts like this one, visit my website at  and see my YouTube channel and Facebook clubs.  Thank you!

Revolutionary shortbread Recipe!

A New Way to Make Shortbread

I've been experimenting in my kitchen and have a brand new shortbread recipe with a secret ingredient! They are fabulous, tender, sweet, buttery, I can't say enough about them. It was fun too, share a laugh with me at the end of the video.

Words Come to Life- Hand Painted Silk Scarf

I'm always looking to try something new and creative!

I painted my version of a literary scarf with mountains and a quote from my first book, "Go West, Young Woman!" It's 100% silk and proved quite a challenge to paint the cursive lettering.  I plan to make a few more designs. It was a fun project.
