The Climb



These little pieces have been a great source of fun. They are becoming my "snap shot " of my time spent walking through favorite places, now and in years gone by.It only takes a fragrance of pine, or the call of a bird, the crunch of past fallen leaves and I'm there.....

This is a 5"x7" ,ready to frame, mixed media collage painting. The image is mounted on matte board and collage unites the two surfaces giving it dimension and texture.

The Artist/Mother

It seems appropriate today, Mother's Day, to dedicate this blog to all the artists who also juggle motherhood:
  • Celebrate the dried out palette...because bathtime was playtime....again!
  • Celebrate the fine ,delicate line gone astray...because your toddler barreled into you with unbridled enthusiasm and hugs.
  • Celebrate the "ah-ha" moment of your painting when your brooding teen deemed it necessary to comment " Is THAT a color?"
  • Celebrate the quiet of a just cleaned kitchen table on which you placed your painting...dreaming of a studio.
  • Celebrate...overhearing your children say "That's my Mom,she's an artist!"

Celebrate your children....your greatest work of art!

Thank you, Stacy, Jessica and Lindsay...with love, Mom

Finally launched!


I've waited a long time to blog. Reading other blogs by many artist has encouraged me to give this a try. The final push came after discovering Alyson Stanfield's www.ArtBizCoach.com.
Her marketing approach is very pro-active and common sense....and blogs are a means to the end.
My blog title states that I am a daily painter but a Sunday blogger...hmmm . I have recently joined with a very hard working art rep, who is selling my work well.

That situation plus a very active show and demonstration schedule keeps me painting at a fast pace.Bloggging takes time. Is it valuable? I've truly learned alot about the internet, marketing and networking with many artist that have great ideas.....but the painting comes first!
I hope you will visit with comments, click on my web site ...and I'll get back to you next Sunday!
