I'm so happy to share one of the illustrations that will be in my new book from the "Go West, Young Woman!" series.
See who keeps me company during the day. As a side note, if you look at the framed drawing on the wall behind me, it's the self portrait of my father. I managed to find it many years ago, and it's my personal treasure. Enjoy this sneak peek ! 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 continuing to how to blend my city ways with our new rural western life, so, I'm surviving the wilderness in style. Our 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.
