White Buffalo

Happy New Year to All! I hope this year is the best yet.
I saw this young Buffalo when I was out in Colorado last spring on a bird trip. White Buffalo are considered to be sacred signs in several Native American religions.

"A white Buffalo carries a message to the people to whom it appears, warning them that hard times will be arriving unless the people examine the way they've been living and learn to live in a way that is better for all."

This seems like a good resolution to start the year with.

Wishing you all a peaceful Holiday and New Year! It's not a pine tree.... When the temperature drops below zero, (which it has done already a few times this year), my little studio just can't keep up with the cold. So I have set up in the house and painted a few times this month. There is a dead birch tree out the front window that I love looking at, especially since it is usually hosting some woodpecker or other bird. I painted this over the course of a couple days, when we were lucky to have the clear thin blue sky of winter.
