First, I’m going to just come right out and say, I’m not an expert by any means. I myself expect that I will be still learning new techniques and new ways to create…

Golden Blue

“Golden Blue” Reference by Karen Brommelsick and ending here tonight! Its Monday folks, and its time for more eBay auctions to end! Which, do we have any requests for specific subjects for our auctions? I’m open to new challenges and new ideas! This piece is a Criollo horse. A horse from France, Karen said! Who…

Puzzles and Diamonds

Yes, I named this pretty tobiano paint “Puzzle”. Story time! So, if you’ve read the Chronicles of Narnia you might understand the reference. In the Last Battle, the final book in the 7 part series, one of the main characters is named Puzzle. He is a donkey that the ape, Shift, dresses up to look…

Mother’s Love

Happy 4th of July folks! I hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday weekend. I know we did! Most of the fireworks displays around us were cancelled, however, we still had a great weekend. We had our own fireworks display Friday night. Every year it amazes me how my husband turns into an excited…

Friendship Roses

I swear, this year has been crazy. I know I don’t need to tell any of you that! As an artist, everyone would think that creating art would be my way of dealing with the stress this year has created. However, I had quite the artist block. It was weird, because I don’t normally get…

“Happy New Year”

Photo by NordWood Themes on Unsplash New year, new you. At least that is what is supposed to happen right? I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with New Year’s. I hate the idea of resolutions because most of us don’t stick with them. We have great ideas and want to do this or that, but…

The Things we Dread

Yes, I know, how could I post a picture of a gorgeous horse like Nine Pieces of Eight and talk about dread? (Yes, the photo is mine!) I’m sure some might have been missing the art as of late. In some ways, I have been too. The things we dread are often created in our…

“Smelling the Flowers”

Painting 19! This one is the other kitty. This kitty looked as if it were simply sitting in the sun smelling the flowers! Honestly I wonder if cats do enjoy the fragrance of roses and lavender. Do they smell them and think, these are good smells? You know, there are days I wish for a…

“Orange Kitty and Lilies”

Well this weekend I was in a “kitty painting” mode! I finished up our lovely Banks: Isn’t he so majestic and adorable? His mom can’t wait to get him home now. So, since I was still in the mood to paint kitties I decided to paint two more! The first one here is an orange…
