“What kind of a painter are you?”

Tough question to answer, let alone decipher the REAL question being asked. My answer, however, is…I am a great painter!  But is the question: 1) do I paint in watercolor, acrylic or oil; or 2) do I paint landscapes, florals, portraits or abstracts; 3) am I a professional painter or a hobbyist or 4) am

What would I paint if…

…no one but me ever saw what I painted. Good question. Deep thoughts. Not easy to answer. Hard to explain…but will try! LOL! I would imagine pretty much what I paint now but without hesitation. There is a lot of pressure to an artist if they MUST sell what they paint. They can over analyze

Going Outside Your Comfort Zone

Painting in different genres and in different mediums has always been my mantra…it’s like cooking; I don’t just cook chicken strips and spaghetti all the time. I like to try new foods, new recipes, new cultures. We all like comfort but for me, as an artist, I rarely will do the same thing over and

What??? Summer almost over!

Wondering why I haven’t posted lately?  Well, it’s been a busy summer.  Late May we had a flood in our home from the neighbors infinity pool…yikes, this is a mess!  Then I’ve been in two different art shows.  One was “It’s All Abstract” and the other “Art Show 101”.  101 standing for the number of

Workin’ like a dog

If you are a “dog” in my family, then you are “royalty”.  To them I am not an artist, I am their personal chauffeur, cook and chambermaid!  They get home-cooked gourmet meals and fluffy beds of comfort.  They even go to the “salon” more often than I do for their hair and nails.  I sure love these special little

Does your Mother deserve the best?

All mother’s like getting flowers for Mother’s Day but they don’t like it that they “die”, so instead of giving her the same old thing you do every year give her a different kind of flower…an original painting (by “milessa”) that she can look at and remember how special she is and you made her feel.  She deserves it!  And

Spring has Sprung!!!

I can’t believe it’s almost Easter.  Last Sunday was Palm Sunday and I was in West Texas for an exhibit.  It was a very interesting and “serendipitous” week…I will blog about that in a few weeks. The tulips are in full bloom and painting them is so much fun!  Bright colors, sunshine, freshness!  Better catch
