This is a project I completed for the renovation of the old fire station on David Street in Casper. It now houses Killmer and Associates Accounting firm and MOA Architects as well as Raymond James Financial. The original fire pole was left in tact and the conference room was built around it. The owner of the building wanted to do something creative and here is the solution. The fireman trousers and boots were stuffed and mounted on the pole and ceiling after I painted the illlusion of the upper level with firefighters body.
Thanks to Gail Cool for doing the install of the bottom half!

Essential oils Accessories
Since we have a full line of essential oils, other artists who display in the gallery have made an effort to develop accessories for the oils. Bracelets and necklaces are used as diffusers for perfume or aromatherapy. I love the glass roller bottles so you can mix your own blends and roll on.
All locally crafted
A few things that happen to be in my photo collection of what we have in the gallery right now. Only one Steamboat round clock (155.00) left. The bucking steamboat wall hangings are 64.00 each. Several different steel finishes.
Shawls, scarves & hats
Louise Joseph has brought in a fairly large sampling of her work with yarn, much of which is natural alpaca yarns. Definitely the right time of the year for this. I especially love the neck warmers! Lots of Shawls also

De Sensua oils & accessories
We have been carrying De Sensua essential oils since the start up of our consignment business in 2015. De Sensua is developed locally here in Buffalo, Wyoming by Tamatha Grabin. A couple of the local artists and jewelry makers have made unique oil diffuser bracelets and pendants to accompany the oils. We also Glass roller bottles so you can mix your own oils.
Redesigned jewelry box
I finished this jewelry box last year and it moved into its new home today. Several months ago a woman asked me if we had any others. As I showed her another I was working on she stated "No....I would have bought this one if it wasn't painted" :-) Glad it was still here for the taking today!
Dragon Fly Lady jewelry here
We have had Dragonfly Lady Jewelry here in the gallery for the last year. She sells mostly on line and is a jewelry maker from Sheridan, Wyoming. Her pieces are all original and never duplicated....the very reason we only have locally hand crafted work here. So whether you go to her site on line or come into the gallery to see the work first hand, you will only see one of a kind pieces
Bob Felde wood turning
These two have been sold many months ago....in fact Bob's work turns over quite fast in the gallery due to his reasonable pricing. The turquoise inlaid bowl was my personal favorite but it was gone within a week. Due to the media, no two are ever alike. I'm anxiously awaiting his turntables that are coming soon
We had butterflies everywhere in our zinnia garden during the month of September. I'm definitely planting giant Zinnias again next year
A little something....
Finished this little stool recently. I put a price of 40 something on it? Simple little accent piece to rest your feet on or use for a teeny weeny side table
Vore Buffalo Jump
If you haven't been to the Vore Buffalo jump ..... you gotta put it on your list! We finally stopped in and took the 20 minute tour ( that's all the time we had to spare that day) and it was one of those places you walk away from in wonder. I guess it is a rarity as it is a sinkhole jump, not off of a cliff, therefore all the bones were covered over for centuries and it is now an archeological dig. It was worth the tour and it is on the north side of interstate 90 when traveling east to the South Dakota border. The exit past the jump will take you around to the frontage road on the north side of the interstate. It's just 5 minutes off the highway.
This rattler is only 28.00. Most are around 30 depending on the amount of rattles and the condition. Some of the larger ones are 38.00.

Godfather Music Box
I just finished this music box with a Robert Louis Stevenson quote on top and continued around the base.....When It was all completed, lacquer and all.....I find that it plays the theme to The Godfather when you open the bottom drawer! At least I used some common Italian hues for the paint job
Olivia's Bath bomb bons
Bath Bomb bon's made with essential oils, and other natural ingredients. Made in Buffalo, Wyoming by Olivia, a young entrepreneur who is sharing her love for creating home made spa products while funding her educational future. Six bath bomb bon's per package.
Pie for two-Pat Schweikert
I Keep promising to bake pies for the gallery but realistically, it isn't going to happen. If I could figure out a way to do both baking and painting in the same space.......they just don't go together too well. But!! Pat does have these nice little pie plates for two that have the recipe also. I think this is the way to simplify. I'm going to scale down on the baking and do a bit more painting.
