layers of paint...

Hello Friends :)

Just sharing what I've been up to... 
The first six photos are the same painting in different stages.  
She was recently sold and I miss her.  
I love adding layer upon layer and seeing all the changes.  The pictures help me remember the process. 

Happy News!  I am going to Italy!!!  Friday morning I paid the final installment for the class!  Now I'm on the hunt for a good deal on airfare.  I'm feeling quite adventurous embarking on this journey all by myself.  
I hope it will be the first of many such adventures.  I have a long list of things I want to do and places I want to see.  
Realizing this dream to paint in Italy is simply amazing to me.  I have had so many sleepless nights wondering if it was going to happen.  I am so thankful for all the friends that believed it was possible and helped to make it a reality.  

Sold - Thank you Linda!!!

Seeking piece, available in my etsy shop

Italian inspired portrait in progress...

Wishing you well and happy, thank you for your friendship here!

Happily Painting♥


I have been happily painting as much as I possibly can.  Here's a few pics of what I've been working on.
When I'm not painting, my son has been teaching me how to play waterfall ping pong.  That is about the only exercise I've been getting aside from walking my dog.  I  am operating on little sleep since I've been painting into the night after the kids go to sleep. 

My ebay sale is going really well!  I'm up to 80% now for my trip fund to paint in Italy with Misty Mawn!!!
It feels amazing to have my dream within reach now.  3 months ago I thought it was impossible. 
I am starting to get nervous about traveling by myself but I know it will be a grand adventure.  

Sending all my love to the dear friends, creative souls, and family that have supported me. ♥

My Birthday Wish...

I am another year older and feeling thankful to be alive.  My sweet boy helped light my candles, I closed my eyes and made a wish...
I wished to realize my dream of painting in Italy with Misty Mawn.  I believe dreams do come true.  

I am having my very first ebay auction HERE featuring my own orginals and few pieces by the talented Judy Wise!  

I have put my whole heart into these paintings and now it is time to let them go.  

I have a few more to list as soon as they're finished.

Much Love,
