Three Easy steps to solving ALL of Life’s problems. (If ONLY!)

When at a loss for what to do… 1. Do what you know HOW to DO. 2. Remember what you KNOW to be TRUE. 3. Find something NEW for YOU. I like to explore ALL my options. So much so, that it has become a joke in our family. If you want something researched like a […]

“Expecting” is one of many paintings I created during the summer of 2016. But this one was special. I painted it with a friend in mind. A friend who was expecting. Expecting. Hoping. Dreaming.

I take NO credit for this. (Refrigerator art comes a long way)

I wish I COULD say I had something to do with this. Instead, this beautiful design on my refrigerator is the artistic handiwork of our 8-year-old son. I wish I were the kind of mom that said “Hey… let’s get out those new magnets and make something cool together.” I didn’t do or say anything […]

I have fallen in love…

This painting is the second (and definitely NOT the last) oil painting inspired from my favorite  field in Travelers Rest, SC. (Click here to see a link to the first one.)
