Two Wolves Captures G's Spirit in Leather

I'm not sure if it was the lunar eclipse or if the planets are in alignment or something.....  I sent a bunch of photos to Shutterfly last week for enlargements so I could frame them.  A couple for gifts and an 8x10 of one that I've been meaning to do for a long time as its one of my favorite pictures of G.  I picked out frames and hung it on the wall yesterday....

Back in July Val (loneelk) had asked me to do some touch up work on a photo of Chet Two Wolves' recently deceased horse Red.  And I asked if it would be okay if I did something with it and I created a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout.  I framed it up, sent it off to Two Wolves and it became part of their memorial wall.  Val told me that some day in some shape or form Two Wolves would repay me for my gift.  I told her that wasn't necessary, but she explained that it was the Lakota way.  So to respect Two Wolves and Val, I knew I would accept this thank you.  Well, a couple days ago Val told me to be on the lookout for a package and it came today.  I just about fell down when I unwrapped this beautiful piece of art.....

Words cannot fully express what this gift means to me, truly they can't.  I will cherish it always, as it is not only my heart horse, but when I look at it I will always remember the events that unfolded leading up to its creation; the story of the man/the artist, his lovely wife, and his heart horse Red that left this world too early.

To Two Wolves and Val from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for capturing G's spirit in leather and presenting me with this thank you.  It is just incredible, it truly is! 

If any of you horse lovers out there would love to see your horse come to life in leather, you can contact Val & Two Wolves through their Bonanza booth at
