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.

    I did this this this morning…yep.. I sit down at computer, was rubbing my temples.. and my sweet hubby called..phone, and asked if i were busy.. nope, not painting yet…. he had forgotten his badge to get in for work, and so, I got one poor little pitiful E off.. then drove to meet him about half-way.. around 15 miles.. then.. got busy in town on errands, looking at places I've never been.. doing some odd & ends for the shop/studio..found a few folks to visit with.. took a few odd photos at the train tracks.. got my own slick/white 4x8 sheet board to make my own erase board.. had them cut it in 1/3rds.. presto.. 3 for less than one at store.. later had supper with that guy, and just now getting back on my computer.. well, hope I can get some nudges off tomorrow! haha.
    Now my eye-baggies are sleepy.. I'm off of here early! nite nite!

    Photo is a portion of a young 2 yr old filly (in training) that I painted, watercolor, but close-up here since it's the eyes we need to massage today!! When my horses were at home,..(Easy is at my daughter's ranch in Colorado now) I know they got a lot of massages.. eyes, nose.. muzzle.. neck.. withers.. yep, good for my soul too! :-)

    Wanda, Candace, Karen.. thank you so much for the sweet nudges!! this one is a welcome one.. I love music with upbeat energy in am.. when painting.. well, most anytime.. sometimes though.. I love easy music.. drum & pipes.. but for Monday morning.. my choice will be some Stevie Ray Vaughn… maybe Texas Flood.. sorta bluesy..but still great for painting.. dc done!

    Painting is some of my whimsy gals.. they look like they want to boogie to some TX music tomorrow.. haha… title of this one is, "Me, Myself, & I" after all, we gals are each of these.. elegant, daring and down to earth.. just depends on the music we listen to in our heads.. hahaha.. hugs to all, and to all a good night! 40 degrees.. rain.. brrr..

    hahaha.. this is perfect timing!!! they must've saw me coming out the door after I just ran in for"2 items".. of course, my two items turned into.. 2 boxes granola, a bottle of leg cramp capsules.., almond milk.. 1/2 gal cold berry juice.. and one hersey bar.. all carried with my own two hands, arms and balanced against myself.. dc is so done! I know better! and usually grab a little carry basket when only after a couple items.. but.. I can sure pack a big basket if on a mission to not go to store again for a month!! (that never happens, always have to go again but I do stock up sometimes)
    Thanks over-flow from the biggest shopping cart, to my sweet E folks, Wanda, Vicki & Karen!!! Karen, for your small basket on line shopping.. maybe a time limit?? haha.. Vicki, it's dining here now.. and chilly still.. sure hope you get relief from it soon!! and that the bridal shower stays dry!! haha.. Wanda, I hope the new printer is a good one!! and that man of yours likes it a lot!! Wishes to ya'll for a beautiful Sunday!
    Rain falls here, has been off and on.. like a little kid turning the facet on..off.. on..off…on.. , and thankfully, no wind right now! Spent the day at big art meeting, then basketball games with little granddaughter playing, right in our own town!! They have a tournament at the college here.. all kids.. she's 7th grade .. a starter, and they won today, so back tomorrow.. afternoon.. yea.. am sleepy tired!! see ya'll tomorrow sometime!! Hope everyone has a peaceful Sunday!!

    My photo.. a watercolor of one of my imagination gals.. and I think she could be looking at a whole isle of Hersey bars on a flash sale.. and she forgot to get even a small basket.. yep, a worried look I see.. must be because chocolate's on sale and no basket.. hahaha..

      Cherine -- busy, busy, busy. I would love to have a video of that shopping trip. It would make a great movie short -- or I guess their U-tubes today.

      I love the painting. Reminds me of a lady I know. Sent a copy to friends who know her and asked if the knew her. ...see more

    Wanda.. thanks for the nudge!!
    One positive change I've made to a room in my home.. hummm.. wonder if this can be an "in progress" thing? well, I going to say, yes.. because, since we are working on the shop/ studio up hill behind our home, for my art studio.. I'v been slowly re-arranging things in home as I tote art supplies to the studio..
    one table will head up there soon, I'll use that as my one change.. more room in my computer area. :-) dc done!
    Photo is just of a few of my art goodies.. (I've posted this as my profile not long ago) it works today since it's art supplies that will find new home in shop/studio.. except my watercolors will probably remain upstairs here in home.. there's a couple home portraits in progress in this photo.. not finished at time of photo!!
    Wishes to all for a wonderful evening!

      I always look forward to seeing what you will share with us. As I keep saying, my real estate agent didn't get the memo about rewarding buyers with a portrait of their home ... smile. What a nice gesture.
      Happy weekend, Cherine.

    Mix it up.. do something different..
    well, I drove about 4 miles to reach an estate sale that is going on directly to the north of us.. but.. maybe only a mile&1/2 if could cut across pasture!
    and.. I did something different.. because I had never been on that particular road! dc done!
    I bought a heavy metal porch swing, A-frames with swing, can fit 3 people and it fit in pick-up-- barely.. . will paint it & put new cushions on it.. a great deal! also, lots of little tools.. odd old well-made ones, 2 big metal cabinets.. perfect for my art studio! .. will go back tomorrow to load them in pickup and bring home.. several other odds & ends..

    Wanda, Debbie, & Candace.. many thank you's for the sweet nudges today! I appreciate those so much!! thanks!!! I am always tickled with the E's folks send me!!
    Photo is one inspired by one of my daughter's colts.. but I painted it different too.. loud red mane.. instead of the black of the real.. and made it more whimsy in nature than realistic.. but, I like it.. and the new owner seemed to too. :-)
    Now, super tired.. been painting those walls in studio/shop.. sorta a whitewash thing going on.. half done.. just under the loft.. this silly old shoulder squawked some.. anyway, time for a rest! I hope all of ya'll have a great nights rest too!!
