A calendar for you! Art for July 2017.

Why do I give my art as GIFTS? Because I think that everybody could use a few more Pictures of Hope in their lives! This month’s giveaway is a July Calendar for your desktop that includes my most recent painting called “Endurance.” Here is is drying on the easel in my studio today while the […]

Endurance. What is YOUR story?

My most recent “Endurance Story” happened in Charleston, SC. In the middle of a sun-baked park. Surrounded by several years of my artwork. Protected only by a 10″ x 10″ tent. For an endless string of 17 straight days.  By the end of DAY ONE — all I could think was… “How did this ever […]

Reflections on my Cinderella weekend

This past weekend, Tim and I participated in a juried art festival called “Art on Main” held in downtown Hendersonville, NC. My painting “Sunflower Field” was the image that was chosen to promote the show this year. It was on everything — signs,  posters, bags… all of which I was asked to autograph throughout both […]

What happens when 18 people pray for 18 days? (highlights from Piccolo Spoleto 2012)

Does prayer make a difference? It sure did for me. Even as I write this, someone I love is smack dab in the midst of a major life crisis, but I’ve watched in awe over the last month as our powerful God has continued to specifically answer the earnest prayers of her band of praying […]

We made it to Charleston!

If you’re visiting Charleston for either of the Spoleto Festivals and love […]

Goodbye, Hydrangeas…

Charleston here we come! I am not thrilled about leaving my hydrangea behind. It is in full bloom right now, and by the time I return from my time exhibiting at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, it will probably be spent and faded. There are some other things I’m not crazy about leaving behind either. Our […]

2,500 staples and 3-1/2 days later…

39 Flower Prints were born! I spent the better part of last week working on stretching a whole new batch of Giclee prints for some upcoming events I’m participating in. It was a marathon of stretching for me, as I assembled 30 small flower prints and 9 large prints. Thank goodness for my new POWER […]

Some questions just aren’t that easy to answer…

Last Friday, Saturday, and Sunday we had a total of 602 visitors at 201 Studios. The reason for all the traffic? Greenville’s Premier Art Event of the year — Open Studios— was taking place. “Was it a success?” That is an interesting question. I guess the best answer to that question is “it depends on […]
