|"Chomp" by Amy Ringholz|
Amy Ringholz is the featured artist at this year's festival and I love her beautiful painting displayed above titled, "Chomp." According to the JHCOC, "Ringholz makes a foundation on passionate drawings of sensual black ink lines upon which she adds saturated colors, texture, intrigue and emotion to her wildlife images. Her paintings appeal to a wide array of art enthusiasts. She uses the animal’s eyes to show the soul of the painting. These eyes convey mystery or daring, humor or mischievousness, and sometimes a warm, gracious and loving heart. Amy and her characters are kindred spirits happy to explore, to evolve, to excite, to engage and to enliven whomever they touch."

I had the opportunity to meet Craig and his lovely wife, Judy, a few years ago at a writer's conference when I was seated at the same table for dinner (along with another favorite Wyoming author, Tim Sandlin). It was one of my most memorable evenings. And if you ever get a chance to meet Craig and Judy, then you will know why I feel this way.

And here is an excerpt about the new series from examiner.com written by Carol Thomas (3/6/11):
The Art & Entertainment Network (A&E), in partnership with Warner Horizon Television and TNT, has placed Longmire, a pilot episode for a television series based on Craig Johnson's mystery series, on its production schedule for 2011. Australian actor Robert Taylor will take on the role of Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire, Johnson’s central character.
Taylor has appeared in such films as Coffin Rock (2009), Storm Warning (2007) and Rogue (2007). He is also known for his role as Agent Jones in the 1999 film The Matrix.
Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny wrote the hour-long pilot for Longmire. They will also serve as executive producers along with Greer Shephard and Michael M. Robin. Greg Yaitanes will direct.
In a March 3, 2011 post on his Facebook page, Craig Johnson comments on his role as “creative consultant” for the Longmire production. “They've pretty much kept me in the loop and asked my opinions on everything – which means that if it fails, I'm blaming me,” he writes. He also includes a photograph of Robert Taylor, whom he describes as being “the guy I wanted” to play Sheriff Walt Longmire.
Johnson introduced Walt Longmire in the 2004 series debut novel, The Cold Dish. Longmire is a Vietnam veteran who has served for over two decades as the sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming.
Johnson has continued the adventures of Longmire, his Philadelphia-born deputy, Victoria Moretti, and his best friend, Henry Standing Bear, through five additional novels – Death Without Company (2006), Kindness Goes Unpunished (2007), Another Man's Moccasins (2008), The Dark Horse (2009) and Junkyard Dogs (2010). A seventh Walt Longmire novel, Hell Is Empty, will be released in the U.S. on June 2, 2011.

Traditionally, gazpacho is made by pounding the vegetables using a mortar and pestle, but contemporary cooks favor using a blender or food processor for ease in preparation. Another preparation method is to dice the ingredients, reserving the liquid from the vegetables, to create a chunky version of the soup. Gazpacho is typically complemented with different garnishes. These may include the same vegetables the soup contains, as well as croutons. I like to serve gazpacho with sliced baguettes, drizzled lightly with extra-virgin olive oil.

It was the wise and enduring philosopher, Aristotle, who coined the phrase, "Patience is a virtue," and this certainly applies to those of us who are gardeners in Wyoming!
In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous. -Aristotle
