The Count Down Begins!

It’s ONE MONTH and counting down until my solo art exhibit at the Frisco Discovery Center.  It’s been a year that has rushed by so fast!  I have painted up a storm and haven’t been posting them because I want the exhibit to be like Christmas.  I’m like Momma Bear waiting for all her cubs

“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??? 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
