Learning how to relax is difficult, But learning while painting is calming.  

A simple stroke of blue to calm my always racing mind!  I have missed my quiet time with my brushes and paints.  Praying through this healing moment!  


Working a painting for to long

I enjoy painting, but there are times when I don’t have a vision for the painting.  When that happens my painting are over worked…by me!  It’s not a bad painting. It just doesn’t flow like my favorites.  i’ve already started the second painting.

This is the best part of painting. Nothing is perfect and everything can be done again:)  Createfor the love of it!


The beginnings 

  I was updating my face book last fall, when I noticed a sweet post from a friend.  She was with some friends in Tennessee. I’m assuming this, because that’s where she lives. Whenever I think about her, she is in Tennessee at some famous music stars home, making them meow their voices into perfection.  Any how, she posted a hallmark photo of a little boy listening intently to Santa Claus.  I asked and received permission to paint him.  This is the beginnings.

Getting life in perspective!

When life is crazy and you can’t seem to stop thinking about “poor little ole’ me”. Someone comes into your life for just a brief moment to remind you that life is not about me but about giving and living.  I never met this man. He was a friends family member.  But through photos and the memories from his family, I was able to see his life.  Brief as it is – I hope you too can see how loved he was by the ones who new him best! Becky's Cousin memorial

I’m not putting anything on hold!  I’m going to do it all with a smile on my face!

I want to love and to be loved!

When the day comes when I will need to be painted.

The painting will be big, colorful, full of volume and the story of my life can be read in one brief moment!

Argentina, the way Ornela likes it

I’m painting again!  Can you believe it!

I have a few commission pieces and three of them are of Argentina.

They are a birthday gift, from a husband to his home-sick wife.  They met and married in Argentina and now live here in Ohio.

She misses home and this is what he can offer her and the beauty she misses.


Happy Birthday Ornela
