Some things never go out of style.

A common denominator between gardening, mercy, and love What is Timeless? I asked a group of friends to look at my newest painting so they could help me come up with a title for it. I wanted the name to convey a character trait they admire. And with Mothers’ Day on the horizon, I suggested […]

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 […]

What are YOU expecting? Thoughts for the start of a New Year…

“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.

Big changes are coming…too many to even tell!

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 […]
