Spring Break for kids here in Georgia. I am finishing this oil painting of an old car and cottage that seems to be taking forever. I am excited to be getting so close. I have 3 other paintings going at the same time. I hope to finish this one this week to get it photographed finally. 

Taking the grand kids to do some fun things during spring break and evenings will be working on art works in the process. Have a great week to all of you. 

Saturday and finishing an oil painting

Its Saturday and quiet here as everyone is off doing what you do on saturdays. I am finishing an art piece in oils on a 16 x 20 canvas. I do love old vintage cars and barns. Nothing like a stroll thru the country to see things when you were a kid, or maybe you have never had the chance to stroll thru the country to experience an old barn, climb a big tree or walk down to the lake and sit a spell. Take the moment and go - you will find the best times and the most quiet times. Get away for the day away from all the noise and busy work. Be back soon, much to time and time waits for no one. Have a great day.

Website and New Beginnings

New Artist Beginnings

I finally got it up, not all done yet but congrads on at least getting 75% completed. I could not have gotten this far had it not been for the support of my friends on periscope. Especially starting with where do you go to start a web site? Questions and many more. Thanks Amanda Oleander for telling me to use Squarespace and I am so glad I did. Is it a learning experience yes but so worth it. Thanks to Bob Chapman known as the zookeeper on periscope for all your emotional support as I tackle this. To Scott Langston - Owner/Artist of Town and Country Florist, in Hoschton,GA thanks for being such a great friend all these years and always believing in me ~ your Santa painting is almost ready to pick up and that is one I will really miss, I love the Santa. Wow its loads of work, staying organized and keeping pics in the right place and connections all listed in order helps. I gotta say, now I can paint some and finish the site this week. I hope that all my prayers get answered as I depend on my art and sewing to make a living. The last year has been trying to say the least, but with friends like the Perifamily and my family and friends here at home - I just gotta say Thank you and I love you all especially my family for knowing all these years that life is so full of blessings you just got stop and smell the flowers, in my case its painting and enjoying all of you.

For the last 30 years I have painted and sold by word of mouth, things aren't like they used to be. Now you are in this world of live streaming and videos online everywhere. You really don't need a television its all online. In the years past, it was just paint and folks were always asking when is the new piece going to be done, and it was sold before I got half way there, its still alittle like that with so many folks wanting paintings - I have a list I have been working from. I have to say this web site tried my patience as I was trying to build it. I would much rather be painting and sewing. So now back to what I love and thats the brush and canvas. 

Any suggestions are welcome. Send me a message or text me and let me know. Thanks so much. This is where the real work begins, I am so blessed.  A new beginning.
