JAMES AND JAN IN A CLOSE ENCOUNTER
WITH A WILD WOLF IN YELLOWSTONE

James and Jan just returned from a wonderful trip to Yellowstone. While they were there, they saw four wolves (two black and two grey) on an elk kill which was close to the road. The next day while driving they saw one of the wolves that they recognized from the kill several miles away on the other side of a lake. It was trotting purposefully in the direction of the kill. Surmising that the wolf was returning to the kill, Jan suggested that they drive a little ways down the road, where they then parked and hiked down a small hill and then sat waiting. Sure enough within 15 minutes the wolf passed on its way to the kill. Here you can see the wolf checking James out. After deciding they were no threat, he continued on his way to the kill.

JAMES' AND JAN'S FIRST EXHIBIT TOGETHER

James and Jan had their first exhibition together of James' photos and Jan's paintings at a fund raising event and party called COW THIEVES AND OUTLAWS for Woolaroc Museum. This was the first time that James has displayed his photographs (seen on the left part of the display). The event was very successful with James selling three of his large photographs and Jan selling two paintings and getting a commission. All told they expect to have generated over $3500 for the museum. Woolaroc has many historical western and native American artifacts, and a spectacular art collection of names such as Remington, Russell, Leigh, Rungius and more.
