My art is a reflection of who I am and how I got here. Having always been a country girl, I appreciate all things great and small in my life and environment. I strive to reflect overlooked objects and little things in day-to-day life in my artwork. I hope that my work will instill an appreciation for the beauty found in the simple things that surround us all in our every day lives.

New Year, New Paintings
'Keen on Jelly Beans' 22" x 25"i>
Here it is already the middle of January and I'm just now writing a new blog. I don't know what I have to do to be consistent doing this. I think it's because ALL I want to do is paint but I know if I want to succeed I have to do much more than that. Surprise News! I will be having a workshop at The Art Loft in Dahlongea in August! Details have not been finalized so I will let you know those as soon as they are. I am so excited about it!!
I have several new paintings that are finished or almost finished. These are some I've been working on for quite some time. I've put them aside waiting for new ideas to pop in my head and now I'm getting them finished so I can paint more new ones. Is this too many images to see at once. Maybe I should start posting images as I'm working on the painting so I won't have so many in one blog.
I quit working on this one because I couldn't decide what color to make the jelly bean on top. I finally just made it disappear. It's fun to be a magician! Hope you enjoy seeing this painting as it progresses!
Stay tuned! I will post another one in a few days!
