“Wallace With The Snowy Nose”

I live in Pennsylvania. While we don’t get the worst winter weather in the country (I can only think of those poor folks in New England right now) we get our fair share of trying winter conditions. If you have anything that needs to be done outside it takes a fair amount of fortitude to get yourself out there. Whether its driving (a terrifying experience) or barn work (in my case caring for two horses) sometimes one has to just “plow through.” My husband says that to live in this area people have to “have a lot of bark on them.” As in tree bark. Same thing as a tough skin. So I decided I’d showcase Wallace. Obviously “Wallace With The Snowy Nose” spends a fair amount of time out in the elements. Although he’s all dressed up with some place to go he still can’t erase all the evidence of his true nature. At this time of year those of us who must deal with winter weather can hope a little of Wallace can be with us all.

Artist. Animal friend. Rural inhabitant. Even though I live in a rural area where my ancestors put down roots almost 200 years ago, I'm still an outsider in many ways. So I guess that's why I find creating these interesting characters so satisfying. I'm married to a very patient guy (picture the Marlboro Man) and am a caretaker to a slew of four-legged adorable canine and feline beings who I consider to be the most perfect souls on earth. We have two equine beings who are equally as adorable as well. View all posts by watchfulcrow
