Hi, I'm an artist, born in Colorado, live in the tip top of Texas , ranch raised, lover of mountains & sunsets, critters & quiet moments, open spaces & the smell of horse hair. I am tickled to have found this site & hope this will add to my path of taking better care of self. :-) My hubby hands me smiles to my heart, my 2 kids bring me amazement & my grand kids are truly delights to my soul. I paint, sculpt and have my own gallery. My friends are the colors in my life. I feel blessed.

    Vicki, thanks for the E!! I did it.. tippy toes at work.. and will find my red slippers latter next week, so I can click my heels and head to Kansas!

    Hubby's home tomorrow evening from DC, then I'll start to pack the little trailer for trip to far north east Kansas.. for my BD, Hubby gave me a 3 day photo shoot for artists.. mostly old western scenes the models will act.. like, run away stagecoach.. guys getting off their horse and onto the stage.. Soldiers, Indians, pow wows, dances, peace pipes to trading.. pioneer women in bonnets to gun slingers.. mercantile store.. saloon, black smith.. farmers and teams of horses, mules etc… old 1800's times.. all costumes are time period correct.. I've given them a few ideas of what I would like as that is part of it.. we get to ask for things we'd like to paint.. photos for reference only, no painting on trip.. tons of pics! ohmygosh, I drool thinking about it! the guy has an old time town for props.. pond for horses swim in, or run across edges to spray water everywhere..

    Only 20 artists and it sounds like more than that in models.. some have been in lots of movies.. stunt guys and riders etc.. so cool… I've seen past photos and paintings.. there is lots of character!!! oh yea.. Im drooling..

    2 days up and two back pulling the camper I bet.. its about 600 miles up there.. but we get to stay on site.. no elect so we bought a little honda generator… oh, noooo, I'm not excited… can you can tell.. huh? hahaha… give me my red slippers so I can just click my heels and be there! ha

    photo.. my daughter's little nephew at co fair a few years ago.. he's a sweetie and here.. I bet he's on his toes to reach that hair peek and fluff it up.. haha… funny, I just grabbed this photo and it dawns on me.. she is taking him, (a Jr this year) to horse show with her in Colorado., they have a long drive too.. I didn't go since getting ready for Kansas… he rides and does super too. :-) well, tip toes everyone.. tulips.. or red slippers.. lets go! :-)

      That was a nice gift from your hubby!!! I hope you enjoy it immensely! :-) He's a cutey -- I didn't recognize that as a live cow initially and thought he was holding up a hide in front of him...being quite proud of his accomplishment! ROFLOL!! Oy vey -- time for some sleep! ...see more

    My breakfast is already gone.. it looked yummy too, and was! .. Raisin Bran with a fresh nectarine sliced over it and pecan halves sprinkled over it. The sliced yellows and bright reddish-orange skin was pretty.. juicy and nutty.. yes.. but I didn't know until now I needed a picture.
    so.. here's a picture of a pretty dish for a butterfly.. their plates are gorgeous. :-)

    Arms out shoulder high, palms face back, arms sweep back, then rotate palms forward and sweep forward.. a basic motion kind of like treading water and moving self forward and backward.. dc done.
    Big thank you's to my sweet E givers! Vicki, Patti, Dee, Hope & Candace!!
    Vicki, thunder buckets of rain here 4 nights straight, a little pail last night not a bucket! haha.
    Patti, Yep, rested from the road trip, and worked at art gallery co-op this afternoon.. a quiet day! :-) Mosquitoes here too.. and yes, I spray! :-)
    Dee, wishes for a restful night and peaceful day to you too! :-)
    Hope, haha... I'm groving gal!! moving and groving these arm muscles.. you made me chuckle. :-D
    Thank You to each of you, I grin!!

    photo, I snapped this one on way home 4 nights ago, more thunder heads build and loom.. it took them around 2 hours to reach home.. but when they got here.. they sure boomed and let every one know it! I think this was the 2 inch rain..
    I'll be treading water if it doesn't dry out soon. :-)

      Such a beautiful, inspirational picture you captured Cherine! your timing is amazing!
      We were under a flood watch here but I checked my rain gauge and it said only a quarter of an inch! But, it seemed like it rained all day. Might need to check my gauge for leaks maybe?

    Bob, Patti, Vicki, Candace.. hi! and thank you all so much for the happy E's!! I need these after the long day today, and always love getting a nudge!
    I'll balance on one foot soon, will do this as visit with hubby when he calls again from his conference. Since he's in DC, will this make my balance count more?.. it's a long-distance call.. hahaha..
    Oh, yawn.. a long day of delivering (after I gathered) paintings of other artists to go with mine, to the little town north of us for an art show they are hosting for us. At least no rain, seems the rain comes every night this past week.. I hear thunder now.. it's so wet in the corn fields I can see stalks leaning! We are dry country.. but not currently! Nice after the 10 year drought we've been having. for sure!

    okay.. yes, I'll stand on one foot and balance 10 seconds or so then switch several times. Phone call soon. :-)

    Photo.. a young buffalo rolls in the dust.. I'll try not to fall when I balance!! hahaha…

      Nice photo of the buffalo. Did fall, was it pushed, or did it just flop and roll around? I'm betting on "flop and roll around". You are one busy lady, which must mean your paintings are very popular. Yippee for popular. Hope you stay on that one foot or the other when hubby ...see more

    dc done. :-))

    Photo..Those house portraits of yesterday, one is in GA, the other two in south TX ( I blurred out names & address's in the photo)…snapped this before I sent them off to Dallas, added two photo prints of two little whimsical homes of my imagination for the two little girls, a surprise I didn't tell anyone about.. but I received a sweet thank you note, and a commission to paint the home they just moved into .. after they send me a photo of it. :-) And, the girls have a brand new baby sister, born early Aug!! so, I'll need to make up another home. haha.. that's more cards for here.. all with heart on them.. Home is Where the Heart is.. :-)
    I did write the girls names in swirly letters on the mats, also blurred out here.
    ahhh fun..
    I need to get to dermatologist then eye doc, then back home to paint… and rain still drizzles!! after a 10 yr drought.. we've had 5 inches plus this week alone! wow!
    Wishes for a good day to all!

      Your first three houses are a little more formal than your last two. I like both styles. It's when I can't identify the picture that I don't enjoy it. Have a happy Taco Tuesday.

    Early morning rain poured while I drove hubby to airport.. 4AM for 5 o'clock flight to DC, for a conference. and I opted to stay home to work on several paintings and keep pups at home.. just a lot going on now, and sleep calls my name loud!

    Photo.. a silly one of me the last time we got to play .. no, I don't wear proper golf clothes.. oh well, I don't even know how to play a proper game..barely anyway.. this hole is across the creek from our home.. after 2 years living here, we finally decided the exercise is worth the learning to play.. hubby played years ago.. but I'm learning, having fun at least.. :-) Exercising these arms.. a good thing. :-)
