Good gravy! What a month!  So many emotional ups and downs... I am grateful for them though as they taught me a lot!

2 years ago I took an online art marketing course from The Abundant Artist and, if I am honest, I did not fully complete the course!  I got really hung...

Through this whole challenge I have intended to paint a Kraken, but the wood has not cooperated! Every time I got started sanding down a piece of wood with a kraken in mind I would get down to the grain and "see" something completely different.  This time I would get m...

On June 13th I started my very first painting challenge, where I set out to paint 1 painting everyday for 30 days.  Now it's 32 days later and today I finished my last 3 paintings (yes, I said today..lol)!! So many things have happened in the last 32 days in my home, o...

My heart is heavy with the tragedies of the week & especially the last 24 hours.  I have not been able to bring myself to paint today.  I will be spending time with my children this afternoon, looking them in the eye, telling them that they matter and that others matte...

Today was a busy day!I had a sweet friend come watch the kids while headed to get some things done!  My first stop was to Mz. Millie's house to put a final coat of sealer on her beautiful mural! Now it's ready to face the world come rain or shine! Then I went on to pic...

And actually I like to think of it as "Time Gained" as we had a wonderful July Fourth Holiday spent with my good friend Carolyn Seiler, her family and long time friends! We ate, we swam, we loved & laughed, it was awesome!

 So, today I jumped right back in and whipped o...

This week I revisited some of my favorite subjects, but tried to take on a different perspective or practice a skill I hadn't pushed myself in as yet... like skin tones, the perspective of near vs. far, new flowers (plumeria), etc.  I really liked how this pushed me! S...
