My dear Blossom has left the Art Farm.
May you rest well <3 friend.="" my="" p="" sweet="">
Friends, with a great sadness I regret to inform you that Blossom has died. For all of you who have gotten to know me via my sheep, I trust that you know what a gaping hole she has left on the farm.
She got kicked by her best friend, Magic, the white horse. She followed her everywhere, no fences needed, the pair roamed freely like elegant lawn decor.She never failed to make me smile, seeing her walk by my window, giving me friendly bleat as I rapped on the window or called out to her.Whenever I went out to feed she'd be there. When a car drove up to the house, she'd be there too. She was not your ordinary sheep. She was the incredible Lamb-dog we all (including husband) grew to love as much as I did.
Blossom was one in a million. A dream come true - a pet lamb! Although I could never replace her, I am heading to the lamb shed to see who else needs a mom. I need it as much as they do. I've picked out a sweet little girl named Remy who I had planned to bring home as a companion for Blossom. Remy has that unusual air about her. All lamb with something else mixed in. A trusting friend. More on her soon.
Blossom is buried with our family pets around the box elder memory tree. We had to get a cowboy to come over with a big back hoe and dig a hole. I'm quite certain he was confused.
You may wonder, why a sheep? why so dramatic? Well, all i can tell you is that friends come in all shapes, color and fur. A bond is a bond and love knows no boundaries.

This week and the months leading up to it have been a sweet mixture of excitement and dread, love and sadness, nerves and zen...all backdropped by this huge GOODBYE.
I don't have an empty nest yet, there are 2 little brothers in tow, but the family is changing as we prepare to send off the baby girl who started this whole family thing.
We are so proud of this girl, her spitfire soul graced with elegance and compassion. She will soar out there in the world because she is not afraid. She is smart and wise. She is fun and controlled. She can communicate with precision and stands up for her beliefs. She is present and has beautiful strong wings.
Fly my daughter, fly high! I will be right here with my hand over brow shading the bright sun while I watch you soar.

I love this girl, how she's so moved by her art and how beautiful and strong it all comes out.

My show is just around the corner! Check out Telluride Arts for more info,\ & show description.
The following is a statement about my process and ideas. It was edited heavily for the masses, but I thought i'd share my unadulterated version for you guys as well. always a challenge to be honest yet accessible.
I so look forward to sharing the show with you. stay tuned!
Press release version.
Stephanie Morgan Rogers
inspiration : I have always been fascinated by the sky and where it meets the earth and where we fit in as people fleeting from one realm to the next. History, dreams , folklore and mythology a have always inspired and provided me with the framework for my version of these timeless wonders.
Processes: the ideas for work are always with me and part of how I make sense of where I am, and what I’m doing quite literally, on earth! always starts with a feeling like I’m on a hunt spurred on by imagery that pulls me in , beckoning me to take a second look , challenging me to find the next clue where then my own imagery starts to reveal itself. It’s as if the work calls me to give to it life…my job is to listen and take good notes and tell the story visually.
Meaning: Heaven and Earth concept is about dichotomies - What’s visible and what’s unseen. As above so below and so on. I’m not so much interested in the black and the white but the grey – that magical intersection where the 2 realms mix.
Characters/ Imagery: I am interested in rural life, “salt of the earth” daily work and how the seasons affect that work and the relationships between people, animals, weather etc...living close to the land gives me a unique perspective.
My work has been described as a seamless blend of
ambience and American Folk Art – which I think says it all. Although I move around and use different media
– and in this show – giant tin shapes inspired by 15th century ex
votos – my work continues to explore the endless possiblities of making sense
out of life, here on earth.
Enjoy the journey01 02 18
