(glimpses) – sister tongue

In this wide world were I could only dream of traveling, what stories have been told in words unknown and languages never heard. These sister tongues now often so estranged from each other, might still tell a common tale if only they had the time for a reunion of sorts.

I have been squeezing in time for my first online course ” Miracles of Human Language: An Introduction to Linguistics.” It has been a long time since I was in college classroom and it’s still strange to think that a world of knowledge is just there, on computer screen just resting on my lap as I sit comfortably at home on our couch.

I’ve loved working on them all, but realize that the time may have come to part with some to make new for new ones. I hope to have a list and new photos soon, but if you recall something you saw a while ago that you had interest in, please just let me know.


I finished some new sets of horses (currently in stock with black, auburn and golden manes), as well as  starting some painted sketches and landscapes in scraps of wood. The first is of some far away hills over a Venetian blue sky.



Back to work for now but thanks so much for visiting and have a great week!

    1. Oh, Carie, thank you! It’s always been something that has excited me about working in wood. The softness, suppleness and depth that happens in a carved piece that contrast those straight timbers that boards are sawn into to begin with. ❤️
