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.

EYEGLASSES ON DISTRESSED, DICTIONARY PAGE

"Eyeglasses"
5" x 5" Mixed Media Drawing on Distressed, Dictionary Page

After my mother passed away our family had the overwhelming job of cleaning out her home.  Being the pack-rat I am, I hauled home all sorts of things not knowing what I would do with half of it.  One of the bags contained all types of assorted eyeglasses that had been worn by the family for generations.  (I genetically came by my love of things and my inability to throw things out.)

This bag of eyeglasses has come in quite handy for theater props and some have entertained my grandchildren.  There are a few precious pairs that I treasure that were worn by my mother and father. I also discovered in the bag my very first pair of glasses - a copper metal, cat-eyed style.  At the time, I thought they were the most stunning thing I'd ever owned.  Fortunately I think the only surviving school pictures of me wearing them are hidden under my bed where someday my daughters may find them long after I am gone.
