When I saw this piece at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens' Glass Art Celebration, I knew I had to include it in a post. Why? Because it reminded me of my editor, Vicki Crumpton, who's both an avid bicyclist and a firm believer in recycling.

Vicki, this one's for you.

Out of the Embers Countdown - One Week

It might be wrong to probe, but Wyatt was going to do it.
Can little Polly help Wyatt unravel Evelyn's secrets?

At this point, I'm counting days, not weeks, until the official release date for Out of the Embers. It's an exciting but also anxious time for me as I wait for the first reader reviews. Will readers love the story as much as I do? I hope so!

More information.

glass art
One of the great things about the annual Glass Art Celebration at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is that it features a wide variety of glass art. I particularly liked this one's mosaic effect.

Here's a closeup to show you the number of pieces and different sizes of glass that are used to create this piece.

I wish I could create pieces like this, but since I can't, I'm grateful that the Botanic Gardens hosts the show so that I can enjoy seeing them.

Out of the Embers Countdown - Two Weeks

Fun was not a word she would have used to describe her life.
Poor Evelyn. She's right - her life hasn't been filled with fun, especially not recently - but maybe, just maybe, Wyatt can change that.

Wednesday in Wyoming - February 12, 2020

This piece of art from the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens' Glass Art Celebration is beautiful in its own right. After all, who doesn't like columbines?

What also appealed to me was that it was hung in an outside window at the Grand Conservatory, making its background part of the gardens themselves.

I can picture columbines blooming there next summer. Can't you?

Out of the Embers Countdown - Three Weeks

Evelyn was mighty pretty when she was riled.
Poor Wyatt -- no matter how hard he tries, he just doesn't understand how Evelyn's mind works. Does any man?

Cherry Blossoms glass art
It's time for the annual Glass Art Celebration at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, one of my favorite events of the year at one of my favorite places in Cheyenne.

This piece caught my eye for several reasons. First of all, there's the beauty of the cherry blossoms. But I also liked the way the leaves of the huge banana palm highlighted it.

As you can see, the Shane Smith Grand Conservatory is the perfect place to display art.
