This is why I love what I do...

A lovely little note from a customer at Chartreuse & co.


My wife, Cindy, and I visited your area at Chartreuse last Saturday. I am the proud owner of one of your paintings, I believe it is called "Bro". Needless to say, as soon as I saw it I snatched it up. We both love it and will give it a good safe home. Thanks for such great work, keep it up.
Thanks a bunch,
Greg & Cindy

My response...

I am so thrilled to hear Bro has a good home.  He watches over making sure all is O.K. with his herd.  Ha.  Enjoy.  I so appreciate your note.  I am only sorry I did not get to meet you and Cindy as I was there but running around quite a bit.  Next time.  Thanks again.


SO Bro has a new home and a lovely herd to watch over.
Makes my day!

 Hello old friends. 
 I am back!
See my new pumpkins?

Here is the funny thing with blogging...
I admit I check for comments. 
 I do. 
 I am 52 and I still want comments.  
There, I said it.

That said.  Please check out my FB page at

(Yeah, I want you to like me there too!)
 for new updates on the sale this weekend.  

The above link takes you right to
the Chartreuse page and loads of pics 
of great finds...

So say hello.  I am pitiful!
No I mean it...pitiful.

More Press...Go see The Barn Show

An article about The Barn Show in Gambrills 
was written up and pictured in The Capital. 
Gail of The Kramer Angle is one of the talented ladies at The Barn.
 AND guess whose nest painting was in the photo...


She has another show coming up soon 
and I know it will be full of goodies including some of my art. 
 It is a great sale and only a few times per year. 
 Next one Sept. 27-29.
Here is a larger picture of the nest. 
 It was painted on an old enamel table top...
I used the back side!

Go see my girl Gail!

Hello it's me

Ages since I have been here.
  Many sales, paintings, too many "to do's". 
So many have asked where did I go,
 did I stop painting, disappear into thin air?
  Ah, not quite. (Wishful thinking)
   I have been using Face Book 
as my main venue to show my latest work...
I can be lazy like that.  

But I thought I should at least showcase 
some pictures of my work once in awhile,
 blab on about some new find,
 discuss odds and ends 
and mostly be inspired by YOU. 
 I miss the creativity and fun.  
So here in pictures is what I have been up to these days, 
or years, whatever...

Click above and go peak and leave me a note there...

New business card design...
(contact info on back)

New art...
I have a thing for cows...
Love all things beach...
Obsessed with nests...
Always a ball jar 
and seasonal goodies in the shops...

SO I make absolutely no promises about regular posts.  
I am too old to fall into that one! 
 Let's just say I did it today because...
  I felt remiss.
  Needed to push myself.
  Felt old and worn out. 
 Did not want to paint.
Needed a new look.
Shit, need a haircut.

Anyway friends, Hello again. 
 I missed you.

Vacation for a bit

I will be off the blog for awhile.  I am helping my Mom move into her new home in Michigan next week.  I look forward to feeling the Fall season a bit and taking a break. The cider mill is a must in Michigan.  I hope to do some good picking too!!  I will be back with more creations, I am sure sooner than later.

I am hoping to spend some good creative time, exploring my art as I turn the big 5-0 in a few weeks.  My how life can move so fast and before you know it,  there you are.  I so remember the days when I never thought I would be "that old".

  Reflecting on one's life and the passions that drive us, is a gift.  For me it has always been those I love dearly, my husband, my children, my family and friends.  Thanks to all they do to make me who I am and give me the inspiration, and sometimes the nudge, to create and be the best I can.

 Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.

--Albert Einstein

I love my peeps. 
See you soon!
