Temporary Studio in Wyoming

It is snowing today, April 15, in Byron Wyoming. Pam and I came up from Tucson late March to see after her Mom, Dorothy (96) and help our son Travis move to a small house next to Dorothy. Pam flew and I drove a few days later and brought a couple of projects with me to work on while I'm here. The Cozzens family (that is Pam's side) closed Cozzens Cash Store last summer and so I have been able to use it as a temporary studio. It has good north light and I'm surprised (although I shouldn't be) that having only two projects that I'm working on gives me far fewer distractions than when I'm home with all the unfinished paintings there.

What a pleasant surprise to find your blog! I must tell you that I absolutely LOVE your paintings and I have a number of your books.

At the same time, I need to make a bit of a confession. I've been making a lot of LDS oriented videos and I've used quite a few of your pictures in them (as a result, you might already know who I am). I apologize for the infringement and I would like to formally ask for your permission to use them. Most of the images are not shown in full print but are close I thought that would be better than just exposing an entire picture for people to grab.

I'm assuming that if you put pictures up on your blog anyone is allowed to use them?

I'm currently on the Advisory Board for the Nauvoo University project underway and I'm working on a number of videos for it. I would love permission to use your pictures and would include your name with special thanks in the credits. You can contact me and see my videos at

I hope to hear from you soon!
