“Owls on the Tundra”

My latest bead art piece.  This measures approximately 4.5 inches in diameter. I am having fun with this smaller size and all of the new Alaska animals I have gathered to play with.

New Bead Art

Getting ready for summer.  I will be one of the Artists in Cabin 13 again this summer.  This is a small cabin in Pioneer Park, a lovely tourist stop in Fairbanks.  The cabin is sponsored by Fairbanks Arts Association, artists bring in their work and man the cabin one day a week. It is a fun way to show/sell your art and meet new people.  I will be there on Mondays all this summer, stop in and say “Hello.”

MOOSE

I love that it is still daylight at 5 p.m. ! That means I can see things out my kitchen window while washing dishes. This evening I spotted 2 grouse hens in the big pine tree.  I got my camera and was waiting on this girl to show her head. As I was watching the grouse I caught movement out of the corner of my eye, oh yea, A nice young bull moose.  I took a few good/funny pics of him before he went around the side of the house.

As I was loading those pics onto the computer a large furry head passed the front window. Yep, there was mom moose!  Wow, she is a healthy girl.  She led the young guy around to the back of the house where I got this beautiful close-up. Thanks Ms. Moose.

This is why I love living here!
