My blog of about 275 pieces have been on WordPress since 2008. I decided to combine a website with my blog. I show pictures of my art with the intention that it matches my thoughts that day. I havent written a blog since January of 2023. My main focus is to show on my website my paintings for sale.
Using Scripture for daily living, has calmed me with peace and hopefully love. I’m not putting pressure on to do but to be. Accepting the guidance from the Lord has broken the need to have a career anymore but to let go and let God lead me into the next step of my journey as an artist. The pressure that I had put upon myself years ago is gone. What a relief! I’m asking do you put pressure on your self? The world has some crazy unhealthy ideas what we should do. Been through many fires in my early years…Keep reading
It seems that as I paint over older paintings I’m coming up with ideas that are all over the place. I choose different colors that the art piece had before leaving just part of the art in an area. Planning is not my juice. I attack then squeeze paint here there and every where. I am learning more about myself as I journey through creativity. I’ve been in galleries but if I change my style I’m no longer wanted there because I’m not consistent. In Oregon, I had a show gave a talk sold 5 large paintings in that month…Keep reading
I’ve been in flux for a while going back in forth in what TO really WANT in my life. The journey is tough sometimes and sometimes rewarding. First off is to acknowledge God loves me ME!! Here I am in my late 70s and God has planted a hope in me than He isn’t finished with me yet! I’ve had some success in the art world but that doesn’t mean anything to me today. The gift of painting is still there but where to put that somewhere by journaling or sharing the gift somehow is still a puzzle. Learning to…Keep reading
The realization that my right arm wasn’t working well was when I developed trigger finger. My right arm had gotten weaker and weaker through the Covid time when the gym was closed and I was just walking outside. Silver Sneakers is a program for seniors to help work all the body to keep in shape and I was losing out where it was difficult to use even driving! For those who don’t know my left arm is paralyzed from polio when I was a young girl. That was an epidemic in the late 40’s early 50’s until Jonas Salk came…Keep reading
I closed my gallery/studio in Scottsdale late 2014. After that I was in a funk for years, even not doing painting. It has been a slow journey back to realizing that God gave me this gift to create and to relearn who I was when I started with art. The passion and joy of making art and sharing it with others and hopefully move emotion was MY plan. I have had wonderful experiences in the past (check my about page). But the journey wasn’t about that, it was my walk and acknowledgement of who really is in charge of HIS…Keep reading
Is it too soon or is soon enough? The art world is confused and more so with the pandemic. I’ve taken from 2015 to now to get my mojo going. In the meantime, I’ve recovered from being burnt out and not listening on so many levels to growing into peace. A tough realization of who I am to the knowing of real love of the Lord. Trusting that He had called me to be an artist later in life. So to choose not to do much social media and be open to His direction is out of step with the…Keep reading
