An Arabian Mare and a Little Christmas Piggy








Here are my latest two, an Arabian mare and a little sleepy piglet. They're both on eBay now. I'm having one of those days that I don't have a lot to say. It's been a bit chilly here. But not as cold as elsewhere in the U.S. I got out for a hike a couple of days ago and was surprised to see that the Mojave green rattlesnakes are still out and about even in this cold. I finally got to watch the movie, "There will be Blood"'. It reminded me of what this area must have been like back in its hay day. We have a bit of local drama going on concerning something very similar to the movie. A new mining firm bought out the area and it looks as if half of Red Mountain will have to move. Red Mountain is a neighboring community of about 100 people. Silver was mined there predominately. I'm not too sure what they are after now as the mine has been played out. One thing about buying property in this area is that you may own the land but not the mineral rights or you may own your home but not the land. The folks in Red Mountain fall in the latter category.

Your work is really amazing...I wish you lived locally and taught classes because your animals just blow me away...I love all variety of animals but can never capture their life essence the way you do.

Thanks Krex! I've been asked to teach before and have always turned it down. I'm really lousy at explaining things. My advice would be to look at lots of pics and films of the animal you want to create. Good luck with your work :-)! ~Robin
