Yes, it's Groundhog Day 2019! February 2nd is also known as Candlemas Day--40 days after Christmas. According to German tradition, if a groundhog comes out of his quarters on this day and sees his shadow, he returns to his underground home for an additional six weeks of slumber. Two local groundhogs give their forecasts.

Hello--I'm Lee M. Buchanan and I welcome you to my jewelry studio. Over the years I've pursued my interest in fine art painting, watercolors and photography, giving me the skills and experience needed to pursue jewelry design and to craft artisan jewelry.
I started my artistic career studying fine art and painting. I dabbled in various mediums and watercolors became a prime interest. It challenged me as I gained experience learning how to use color, shape, texture and light to express my ideas in my paintings.
