THIS AND THAT........ALONG THE ROAD.........








Well......we have passed through Montana and Wyoming and are currently in Colorado.....

Just wanted to share a few photos of the wonderful sculptures that lined every street of Sheridan, Wyoming.




And, of course, my absolute favorite.......


Is this rhino....not the best?  Look at the little bird on his shoulder.....complete down to the last detail...

This community is so supportive of artists...with each piece being commissioned by people in the community as an effort to keep art ALIVE.  A lot of these have  been commissioned during the last few years..during these difficult economic times.  Keeping art alive and helping artists support themselves is definitely a priority here.  I think this is so very important ...... as Art is food for the soul.

Hugs from me to you while on the road.

P.S.  Still really hard to visit and download blogs....took me forever to download these pics....please bear with me and understand why I'm not visiting each of you.
