Tonight's the Night-Cribbage Trempealeau Hotel

 Tonight, Thursday, April 18 I will try to defend my title of Cribbage Champ on April 4. Each week a winner is declared and I got pretty lucky for my first time attending Cribbage night. I've been playing on an app since it's been years, back in my college days that I learned from the master Michael Curran.

Will see how well I do tonight. Planning on taking my sketch boo if I get bumped early and hopefully will have willing subjects to pose for me. They sit pretty still while playing for about 15 minutes.

I'll just sip on my beer and be around to see the crowning of tonight's champion. If  add some sketches to this post it means I didn't fare very well. Anyway I'll be sure to have fun.

When the Music Ends 11x14 oil framed $350

It's almost time -Here come the hummers.

 Spring is upon us and that means the return of birds. I like to set up my hummingbird feeder before they are sighted so the first ones make their stop at my house and maybe call it home. Usually this is around May first but with all the warm weather and early buds I may have to change my calendar.

 Still working on finishing up for my art show at Elmaro Winery in May. Once that's done I'll be free as a bird to get outside and paint. Can wait!

 From skilled predators, to their impressive eyesight and hearing abilities, these avian marvels have been thought to be intelligent creatures by many cultures and folklore.
