Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

If you’ve been following my blog, you may know that I am a Wyoming girl. Yes, I currently live in Colorado, but Wyoming is the place I love. The remoteness, the beautiful landscape (minus a few parts here and there), the lack of crowds – it all appeals to me. If you’ve lived in the state long and meet another Wyomingite, there is definitely a bond. A sort of unspoken knowledge of what Wyoming is and how lucky one is to have had the opportunity to live in the sparsely populated gem. It’s also refreshing to meet new folks who have moved into the state and see their excitement and appreciation for the same things.

Recently a Representative from Wyoming, Hans Hunt, told a new resident, after she voiced concerns about the position he and other politicians were taking, “It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking.”  He continues in an oh-so-friendly manner that makes you wonder if he thinks his family was originally plopped down on the great state by God himself. You can read more of it here, and see afunny meme about it here (my apologies, I’m not certain where this image originated).

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
