Blueberry cookies with my super secret ingredient!



This is the video you all have asked me to make! Enjoy these fresh baked cookies with some four legged friends who are excited to try them. 






I'm a wildlife artist and author. I live on the side of a mountain in Montana near the Continental Divide with my family, where I write and paint about our frontier lifestyle. We left Washington D.C. when my husband retired from the military.  We wanted a change, of lifestyle and we got it!  I admit I'm a fish out of water here, and I'm learning how to blend my city ways with our new rural western life, so, I'm surviving the wilderness in style.  Our new neighbors are cougars, bears, and wolves.  I hope you enjoy our real pioneer experiences, with wildlife encounters, horse and dog rescue, baking, gardening, art, decorating, landscape photography, and much more.  I hope to see you on the mountain, laugh and learn with me.   quinnwildlifeart.com

The Animals of Autumn



This autumn has been unusual. We have experienced two snowstorms. The first snow fell the last week of September, and the next storm came the first week of October. The animals don't seem to mind, and when it melts, it's business as usual. Enjoy the animals who visit us on the Cimarron homestead. I'm a wildlife artist and author.

My garden visitor-who wasn't a gnome!




A Visitor in my Garden and he isn't a Gnome.

     One of the joys of living on a rural mountain in Montana, is seeing and interacting with various forms of wildlife.  This male red fox often visits my garden.  He has a mate who raises her young in a den nearby our house, and has been doing so for the last several years.
   
     Sometimes , I will look out my dining room patio doors and see this fellow peering in with curiosity. I continue to remind him that his job is to catch the rodents on the property, he then turns away and goes about his business.

     We see him all year long, and I do enjoy his company.  However, I have to to be careful, because we have a small dog named Penny that we have to protect from predators, including this handsome fellow.     



     If you want to read more about our "wild life", look up my books "Go West, Young Woman!" and "Stay West, Young Woman!"  My third book will be available soon.  www.quinnwildlifeart.com   

     I would love to hear from you if you have a comment or a question, contact me here or through my website.  I can also be found on Facebook, where I host a group- Creative Country Lifestyles with Wildlife Artist and Author Nancy Quinn.

A door can be a Work of Art




A Door can be a Work of Art



I managed to finish this outdoor project before the winter storm that arrived unexpectedly in the last week of September.  It's something we have to get used to, winter can arrive at any time in the Rocky Mountains.





As an artist, I see almost any surface as a place for artistic expression. If it doesn't run away from me , I will probably paint or decorate it. I hope this video created on our homestead in Montana, inspires you to try a hand at your own creativity. I'm a wildlife artist and author.

A special Bond with Equines




An Amazing Friendship


                                                             
                                                              quinnwildlifeart.com

Wilson enjoys watching me work inside my art studio. Even though I had finished early and closed up for the day, he still looks for me through the window. Now, Star watches me work too, they often greet me at the door and keep me company through the open window, we have had many interesting conversations. Sometimes Whiskey joins them or naps nearby. Their love and loyalty is so heart warming. I'm blessed with the bond between us.
Now that the mushy stuff is over- yes- I do clean up around the house at the end of the day. One of the joys of horse ownership. 🙂🐴🐴🐴

Feeding Frenzy Foiled!




Feeding Frenzy Foiled!





We had some uninvited rodent related guests that insisted on bringing all their friends, family, and neighbors to the round pen when we fed our horse, Whiskey.  We had to do something, find out how we solved this problem on our Montanan Mountain.  Laugh and learn with us!

Lightning Storm on the Mountain




Summer Storm

I was fortunate enough to capture a couple of minutes of this lightning storm.  It was a fascinating experience that I wanted to share with you all.   The storms move across the mountains very quickly and this one began almost 50 miles away.  Sit back and enjoy the big skies from our mountain homestead in the west.

The Ultimate Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie






This is a fabulous cookie!




This is also one of my "laugh and learn" videos, so enjoy the process- and the cookie.  It's moist and tender with large milk chocolate pieces. You can't go wrong with pumpkin, oats, and chocolate.  I hope you try them.  They are great for parties and pot luck gatherings, they freeze well too, if you want to save some for the future.  Enjoy!

TAPS a Memorial Day Tribute




My Memorial Day Tribute





I knew the day would come when we would no longer honor Memorial Day as a family.  My daughters are growing up and have responsibilities of their own, so it was inevitable.  Last year I recorded TAPS for them, and made this video so they could still hear it, even if I couldn't sing it in person.

Being a military family, I started singing TAPS to the girls each year so they would understand the sentiment of the day set aside to remember our fallen soldiers.  I hope you enjoy it too.

The Painted Door




The Painted Door


The doors to our shop have been white for years.  I decided to paint them in an abstract mountain theme.  I used outdoor latex paint, and mixed the colors to make some custom shades.  It was a little different than painting on a canvas, but was a fun afternoon project.  Now the side door is next, (I just can't help myself!)

It seems I can't live in a house without painting the walls and doors, or creating a stained glass design on the windows.  I hope this project inspires you to find your own creativity, and try something new.

Mercurial Montana






Our weather here on the mountain is unpredictable at best.  It can change within minutes and the seasons are almost a rumor, or a mere suggestion, it doesn't really follow the calendar. 

This photo was take one evening as the sun was setting.  Even though it looks like it's storming, there was no rain in sight, just these beautiful and dramatic cloud formations.  It was magical.

Hand Painted Glass



My Stained glass Look Alike


I have always been a fan of stained glass.  Since I didn't feel I had the time, resources, or talent for it, I found a new way to achieve the same look of textured, colored glass, by mixing glazes, and hand painting the sheets of glass panels in my kitchen cabinets.  Upon close inspection, it looks like cut glass soldered together. 

I used the wildflowers in our front meadow for inspiration. I drew the designs in sections, mixed the glazes in different colors and opacity, and then applied them with a paintbrush to create texture.  It was a fun project and worth the time and effort.

Later, I found out one of my flowers- was actually a weed!  I'm brushing up on Montana's flower identification.  
  



For more real life experiences on our homestead in the modern wild west, I hope you will enjoy my books, art, and videos.

We are continuing to dig our way out of the snow.  It’s snowing again today, but the temperatures are warmer than last week.  This is my third radio program on Blog Talk Radio.  Yvonne Mason is kind enough to give me an hour of airtime on her show once a month.

We talk about my winter rescue missions, wayward elk and deer, and frontier medicine of the old west.  Some of these remedies will make you cringe, some are funny, and some may be helpful.  

I hope you enjoy the program.

Dinner Guest




Dinner Guest

     My horses, Wilson, Whiskey, and Star, didn't invite this fellow to supper.  An elk jumped over the corral panels, pushed the horses away from their food, and went into the hay storage area, where he proceeded to try and eat everything in sight. 

     We had to come to the rescue and scare him away.  I feel bad for the wildlife this particular winter. It is one of the worst ones we have experienced.  I wish we could share our food with them.  In truth, we are running low on hay this year, and have already begun to supplement the horses diet with store bought feed.  I think we are all ready for spring to arrive, but it's several months away.





I hope you have enjoyed coming along on our family journey of learning how to live on a mountain in the American west.  You can learn about more of our frontier lifestyle through my award winning books, art, and videos on my website.
