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.

6" x 9" Mixed Media Drawing on High School Dictionary

This drawing of an antique dictionary was created for Santa Fe but didn't end up making the trip.  My Santa Fe gallery requests specific frames that are different from the frames I generally use for art shows.  When I was preparing for my New Mexico trip to restock the gallery, I only ordered eight of their frames.  My gallery owner wanted this drawing but I didn't have enough of her type of frames to include it.

He is now going on our trip to the East.  I spent my morning ordering frames and harvesting new pages to stock my booth at Grand Haven and at the Berkshires. This is my first time to build enough inventory to do two shows back-to-back.  I have a lot to accomplish in a very short time.  Even under the gun and in a rush, I am determined to create high quality work that I'm proud of.
