Easter tomarrow and it is snowing!!!! Our annual out of doors easter egg hunt will have to be indoors......I wish the easter bunny would come visit me. I used to love getting a basket-one easter, the bunny didn't come--we ran into mom and dads room a bit hysterical and mom told us we were the last stop and we had better go back to bed and stay there for a while or he would be afraid to come and deliver........and I STILL believed for years afterward and somewhere inside me I still believe in all that. I honestly have the same excitement the kids do.......the anticipation!!!!!!!
Any old way easter and spring and flowers (does any one else hate white lilies-I call them flowers of death) bring me to this painting today. I walked the dog for an hour and a half in the middle of this so I was very calm and unhurried, just as I felt the woman in the painting was...
This is an 8 x 10 gouache on paper-it will be matted and available on ebay at:

It is finally here!!! It is spring-I just walked the dog for 45 minutes and it was wonderfully smelly and muddy and wet and puddley-I know that is not a word but that is what it was.
Here is an old school house left in a field. Maybe someday I will be left in a field-if I am I hope somebody paints me.........
I went to the art store yesterday and had a great time and bought some brushes-mine are sooooo bad. I wish I could bring the whole store home with me.
I have the screen door open but two sweaters on and now my nose is cold-guess I am pushing it.
This is in acrylics on 8 x 10 canvas board. It will be available on ebay at

I am so happy doing the sky now. It is just an ever changing wonder and it is free!!!! Every day is a different show, a different color a different mood.
It is Saturday and I have had a great day of cleaning painting and going to Target-where I finally found cowboy sheets for my son-boy, was he happy-he is just getting over pneumonia and every thing that makes him smile is a blessing. It truly is the little things that bless us...a kids smile, a hug , a kind look-it can change our whole day!!!

I love this sky-I love this sky-I could scream it from the roof top-but I won't,cause I have this fear of falling, and small spaces and dead things-well, I could go on but I will stop there.
It is finally warm here and it smells wonderful, Someone should bottle that scent just call it Spring and sell it in the winter .
I have to go paint now as I am falling behind on my goals-
This is done in acrylics on canvas board. It is 12 x 16. It will be available on ebay at:

Hey-I have been thinking and this painting a day thing is hard. I think that if you have two kids,a husband, a dog, a house to deal with and auditions and jobs it is a HUGE thing to get out a painting-plus make it reasonably good. I just finished one today that I am shoving in the back of the closet-the good thing is I didn't give up and I learned a few things-the bad thing is I wouldn't give it to my blind grandma-not that my grandma was blind but she did have a pair of those horned- rimmed glasses that were ALL the rage back then. It went well with her perm and sagging you know whats.........but ya know ,despite all that she still thought of herself as the most beautiful girl in the village. I think she should bless me with some of that confidence!!!!
This painting is 5 x 7 in acrylic on canvas board. It is available on ebay at
