- 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.

A TIME OF TRANSITION
As a rule I'm not fond of commission work but I sure appreciate the paycheck that comes at the end. Last fall my oldest daughter, Kiley and I sat up a booth at a local craft fair. She marketed her fabulous hair bows and I promoted my personalized watercolor paintings. I've had two such orders for watercolors waiting for my attention. I also have a niece and a former student with new babies waiting for a personalized baby gift. So my easel has changed over to a center full of watercolors and colored pencils.
Instead of a summer filled with exciting travel I am preparing for a total knee replacement June 3rd which should influence how I spend the rest of my summer vacation. I have been gathering and organizing my supplies in hopes that I will find comfort and distraction painting during my recovery. Let's hope so. I was one of the youngest patients in the orthopedic clinic this week that wasn't there due to a sports injury. The thought of using a walker at my age has really upset my self image. Hopefully my blog will be filled with lots of great work due to my confinement and who knows what you'll discover due to copious amounts of pain medication.
Your prayers will be most appreciated!!!!
