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.

    Big thankU's to Candace, Kathryn & Brenda!! it took awhile to think of something I might need a contract to help me do it.. and finally, I thought of one! and I wrote it, signed and in sight to keep me on the straight and narrow...
    my contract...
    I, CM, will not eat one single chocolate bar tomorrow, nor will I eat more than one, like.. I can not get by with eating 2 or more so the 'not a single' is true statement.. nope, none, naada, zilch! signed CM, 7-23-16.... dc done!!!

    photo is one of the horses in KS during ranch horse show.. he looks at me as if to ask.. "Who, me? I didn't eat it.. not single bite.." hahaha yep, this will be my look tomorrow!

    hubby is in St Paul, MN .for the week, conference.. so the pups & I are alone, ahhh home alone.. and I have a long list to work on.. :-) sorta nice.. sorta a free-fall as far as time is concerned.... will miss him. Jezzzzz...107 hot temp today.. gads.... even at 8PM it was 99.. has dropped to 91 now at hotter than usual it seems... sure in nice to have an air-conditioner!!! I am thankful for sure! I hope I never take our comfort for granted!
    now, where's my candybar.. I won't get one tomorrow! :-)

    Cymry & Candace.. thank you lovely ladies for the E today!! not sure if I caught up any while away a few days.. still running… but not losing a bit of weight! ha.. maybe if I did 'run' after these various errands/tasks.. I work on, I might lose a little! oh well… onward..
    One of my goals is to have approx 40 paintings ready to take to a one person show in about 6 months.. I'll drop that back to 30.. until I reach 20, then will add back up a little.. yes, I think that will sound more reasonable and do-able! specially since I have some already I can count.. dc done!!
    thanks ladies!!!! Your words help me smile.. :-)

    photo is a pic I snapped of a baby at one of the horse shows.. she is a cutie.. and… as in learning to walk.. it's the goals of the first steps, not how many, but just that 1st one.. that means so much.. I think I can scale back on a goal, and work up as things progress… all is good! thanks agin for the nudges!! much much appreciation!!

    Enormous thank you's to wonderful E sharers today!! Wanda, Candace, Karen & Barbara!! thank youuuuu all!

    Cymry, Vicki!! thanks gals for the E's today!!! I appreciate those a lot!!!
    My goal is " steps".. need to clean/spruce-up home for visit from my artist friend who went to Kerrville with me, and who... I went to her home for the journal/painting last month.. I brought a few of her little paintings back with me and put them in the tiny gallery I have in town.. she's coming to see it, and we will take her to the play, TEXAS.. Tues night.. we'll paint/journal-sketch around here.. I know a few cool old victorian homes to go sketch.. who knows what we might find.. but.. step 1--2--3--4--on the way.. her bedroom--bath-- arrange.. pick-up stuff.. etc etc etc.. I think maybe 18 steps will get goals done for Tues... haha..

    Photo.. blooms have to have steps.. grow, bud..bloom.. ahhhh look pretty... and, repeat.. :-)

    Cymry, Bob, Wanda, Pamela, Candace!! ya'll are treats of the best kind today! thank you for my E's!! at least this computer is smooth tonight, not an itch anywhere that I can tell! ... last night DC was just naughty!
    Well, tonight.. I'm to draw a map to a goal! so, I had fun! I sketched a bunch of blank 'paintings' -- this is just a start.. I have to have around 25-32 ready by early next year for a show I was invited to have, one person.. museum in Dumas.. also, I'll be one of 6 animal artists in show around the same time.. so I have to paint.. and not sell them..need to have them on hand for the exhibit! my goal-map takes me from a little stick person sitting on their ,,uhherr.. bottom.. along a trail to shops for supplies.. putting easels and tables up to paint on several canvas' at one time.. paint flings.. little stick me sends dust up from running...
    and a calendar... Winter/spring 2017.. to shows! ahhh dc done!

    I think this it a super dc... wow.. made me realize how quick it's coming, show time for artwork.. that's only like 6 months!!!! ohhhwow!! I've had two years plus since they asked me.. and I have some ready, as long as they do not sell.. haha..

    The photo.. is because of a guy who owns a B&B where we were painting last month.. he cut and tied lavender.. I think I'll paint this one.. along with one of him actually cutting it.. one goal at a time.. cut and tie.. paint and frame.. :-)

      That lavender looks lovely and I can imagine it smells the same way.
      Many thanks for your golden EEeee, Cherine. After Cymry's comments about her Chinese sign, I did a google search to find out what mine is. Well apparently I was born in the year of the goat. Apparently goats ...see more
