Well, sorry it has been so long since I posted. This is a painting that I finished in May. June 10th my Daughter, Son in law and 4 granchildren arrived, so I have been to busy to worry about my blog. Sorry, I see them, maybe every 3 to 5 years and they definately came 1st!!!!! We had a great time, they little guys helped me plant my garden and were great at using the lemon squeezer and master Smoothie makers!!! They were so creative!!! We made clay whistles and 2 did pastels. My Jerry got me 3 new doves and I didn't have them 2 days and one flew the coup when I was giving them fresh water. Well, a miracle happened. Jerry was in the vineyard and saw the dove, caught it and brought it back to me! That was totally amazing. I am doing 2 Academy classes right now and am a bit stressed about it. My dear computer has been a bit strange and may go in to the shop if it does not straighten up and fly right.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
