About Me

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.

This is my first post since having total knee replacement on June 3rd and I hope I am finally getting back to some kind of normal. 

The Sunflower festival was on June 4th and I'm thrilled that my "Fancy Shawl Dancers" won the 2-Dimensional Best of Show Award.  My banner was selected as one of the two pieces featured in a live auction and sold well too.  We were all disappointed that Kelsey's banner didn't sell well but Lindsay's had a nice price in the silent auction.  I wish I could have been there and I don't have much recollection of the day as it is.

I've got my easel set up waiting for me but between physical therapy sessions and six hours on a knee extension machine at home, I haven't found much motivation to be creative. 

Thank you to everyone for your prayers through this ordeal.  I'm anxious to be on the other side and enjoying my creative self again soon.
