By and large... Montana.
My kids and the places we explore.
Water, canoes, rafting, camping, woods, hunting and fishing.
Night.

All Images are by me.
Most are works-in-progress... first drafts. This is a sort of cross-section of my life. A collection of artwork and snapshot from the day-to-day activity.

Answers to frequently asked questions:

I do like apples and making hard cider out of them.
I am distantly related to John Chapman.
I like Scottish music... like Mogwai.

Thanks for stopping by....

Thanks to Grey-card for that last re-post. Thank you followers new and old.
Here’s the same sculpture and the same kids (mine) from 4 years ago. They grow up fast.
