Elk Spirit

“Teach me, oh Shaman, the lessons you know, the wind in your nose and the high country snow…” I walked up in the Cascade Mountains with my brother Jon and we found a herd of elk. The sight of them inspired this poem. The painting was a gift for my mountain man brother, 18 x 24″ acrylic.

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!
