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.

    Wanda, Vicki, Candace.. thank you sweet gals for the E. I'll do it now..
    a couple-3 key characteristics of my ideal job...
    1... A place I smile even if lost in my work
    and where can listen to music when I wish..
    2... A job or a place that allows me to make others smile..
    and both of these are covered... dc done. :-D

    Photo, a feather on our driveway after a misty night. It tickled my eyes enough that I snapped a photo of it.. Key characteristic.. the awesomeness of a simple sighting. Nature... a few steps out my own door and left alone, no photo props, no loud colors.. just the way it looked as it lay there... ahhh... sighhh

    Wanda, Karen, Cymry, thanks ladies! Your E's are most welcomed!!
    I think we all enjoy holding those old albums don't we? I sure do!
    And , unintended, I did this just a day ago!

    I flipped through the old family history book of my mom's and several special photos slid out of the folder part.. I had photos that included my daughter, my son.. even of me that she had snapped over 45 years ago, in my hands.. a ton of memories flooded back unexpected! This wasn't a photo album.. I wasn't expecting these to be in it.

    One of my favorite is a photo I'd snapped.. blizzard (around 20 years ago) after my folks had been stranded in a small Colorado town for 5-6 days, then made it as far as my home, at the time, about 80 miles, then I drove them in my pickup to about 3 miles from their ranch where my son, age 16 or 17 at the time had been stranded during the blizzard. Yes, they were stranded out and he was stranded in!
    My folks had just delivered a couple other g'kids to Boise City where my niece, picked the kids up after they all ate lunch,.. niece headed south fine... but my folks only made it 50 miles north to Springfield, CO where roads shut down already! They were able to get the last little hotel room in the town!

    Yep, out of no-where that blizzard hit! No one including weather guys even guessed the snow would be so much!
    At least we did have land-line phone.. my son got the big tractor out and broke snow drifts to make it to where county road-grader had opened enough for me to get my folks the near 30 miles to where my son met us with tractor..
    anyway, the fav picture is of the back of tractor, the little window in back let me see my son in middle driving, my folks one on each side of him, all in cab and I know all quite tickled to be headed back home!! dc done!

    photo posted.. another one I've already posted earlier but it reminds me of my G'ma.. and so.. brings happy heart memories! :-)

    Karen, Cymry, Vicki, Bob!! Thanks ya'll. your E's are so welcomed!!!
    And now... a note to self as I might write 5 years from now to the present me..
    well, this will be to me and I'll do it in a journal to actually keep and see if any of it comes true, as long as I keep it on shelf to find later! (Cymry, yes, I'll try to do this :-)) I'm sure it will have to do with my family, places to go, things to do, and art improvements. It will take me awhile to think about this.. I'll do it over a cup or 3 of coffee in morning with morning pages, maybe.. :-) dc done, soon.

    Like my photo.. 5 years from now.. I hope I will still be hanging on and climbing with faith...

      I have notebooks all over the place -- like Cymry I look at them and think, "Did I write this?" Fun though. Wonder what our grandkids or ggrands will think. Maybe they won't read them.

      Cherine -- Very appropriate photo. Well done.

      The creativity in your painting is amazing. What a cute idea, and using the brides horse and their dog. Really neat. Don't get that studio so neat and orderly you can't paint. Yikes.

    Honesty, determination, kindness... these traits are built into several folks I admire. Some of you happen to be here too. dc done.

    Wanda, Cymry, Candace thank you sweet gals for the E, I think each of you have these traits! I spent past couple days working on that wedding painting.. it's done, nearly, only a few more things in morning and then can go get its custom mat! uggg... relief!!! I feel like dancing! but too tired!
    Wanda.. The islands are a good place to stay away while we re-coup and you get to feeling better!!! Cymry, my daughter is one of these people. :-)
    Candace... my thoughts are with you, tomorrow will be hard...

    Pic, my lil' 'Born in Texas Birds.'. face the winds head on, sing anyway and always kind to each other..

      Thank you. ♥ I have a person in Ajo who does not seem to like me. I sometimes waste time trying to figure out what I might have done to put her off. I am baffled, then decide it is just an exercise that is divinely made just for me.
