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.

A Glimmer of Spring



A Glimmer of Spring





Is it spring yet?  When I begin to see the wildlife moving around outside, I know the warmer weather is on the way.  It is still winter on the mountain, but I can see a glimpse of spring. The elk, deer, and other animals are on the move.  Enjoy!

News from the Mountain-live radio




News from the Mountain #3

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.
