Blogging is a new tool for me and I’m excited to dive in and see what happens. My wife Jeanne and I live in Sandpoint, Idaho (50 south of the Canadian boarder). Here, on our little farm, we raised our seven incredible children, several cats, dogs, sheep, cows…etc. It’s been a great place to live, raise kids, fish, hike, fix fences, garden…and of course paint. My studio is a remodeled tractor shed with great natural light and an incredible view of Shwitzer Mountain ski resort. We love the mountains, rivers, lakes, and the people here. Today was a good example of why we love living here: My good friend Ken picked me up at 10:00 am and we headed for a little fishing on the Clark Fork River thirty minutes from the house. You ask: Did you catch anything? Never ask a true fisherman that question…but it was nice to get out.
