Each quarter, the City and I are able to recognize an Eagle resident that goes above and beyond in their community. On July 26, the Council and I recognized David Wood for the Eagle Soaring Citizen Award. David is currently the Scoutmaster for Eagle Boy Scout Troop 77. He is also a gifted math instructor working with at risk teens at Middleton Atlas School. He works countless hours with his church and the scout troop to make our community better. He and the rest of the troop participate in Clean Up Eagle and Eagle Arbor Day planting trees, as they have done for several years. Thank you David for your ongoing efforts to make Eagle a safe and clean place to live. You are truly an example to us all.

AUGUST featured Artist
Early in life I discovered an affinity for creating art in a variety of forms. I began with simple drawings of my favorite animals. Expanding into sculptured art for many years, birds and wildlife became my focus. I am primarily a self-taught artist, however, I was influenced by many exceptional artists as I was growing up. My mother was a beautiful artist working in porcelain and ceramics most of her life. She was well known for her reproduction porcelain dolls and bird sculptures. We spent many hours together working on birds, flowers and wildlife sculptures. Upon her passing, I sold our kiln and decided to take a different path in two-dimensional art. It wasn’t until later in life that I began to paint in watercolors. I invested time with a master watercolorist in Texas. He influenced my style and gave me the basics of watercolor principles. My watercolor subjects are influenced by western and ranching culture and often feature ranching themes. This is the lifestyle I grew up with and continue living today. I hope you will see in my paintings, glimpses of my everyday ranching life that includes the animals I love and the people I meet along the way.
