About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

I've been working on little 6" x 6" colored pencil pieces on black mat board for the Nov. 18th miniature show. Our community has been covered with flocks of grackles and crows. I get a kick out of watching them strut around with so much attitude. I wanted to capture some of that personality and decided to add lyrics from the Beatles song "Blackbird" around him. He's already in a frame and headed to the gallery.

Chimayo Chapel

6" x 8" colored pencil on black mat board
Some places have magical, unique characteristics and the little mission chapel located in Chimayo, NM is such a place for me. We travel there often and I think this is the third time I have done a piece with it as my subject. I have even collected little vials of the healing dirt found there. This tiny piece is now ready for the miniatures show scheduled for November 18th at our local Wild Horse Gallery.
