I find all of my inspiration during the day from the falling leaves, flakes of snow that appear like glitter, the tangles in a horses mane, antlers hanging proudly in someone’s living room. The special moment you have with someone, barn wood lying in the wild prairie grass waiting to be picked through. Window frames hanging on by a rusty nail, sheets of tin that were left and forgotten. Strands of rolled up barbed wire, that have the consistency of fried bacon. Wooden crosses where someone’s loved one was once laid to rest. Music coming through your speakers, finding its way to your soul. Rusty bailing wire and the stars at night. The moon hanging low. The color blue, the same color as his eyes. The color of sagebrush and savoring the smell. A four inch saddle horn and rawhide reins. The perfect bit, stamped by a great maker. Coyotes singing, singing you to sleep. Rain drops against your bedroom window along with the chill of the night. Turquoise jewelry embellished with crosses and the color black. Laughter filling the room and smiles on beautiful faces. Old couples at the local café, you know the ones you see every day. Sunsets, the ones that make you bow your head.
