A Bit Behind on Painting

Bowl of Cherries, I Oil on Linen 4"x6" SOLD

I have been painting a little, but I have one month to finish 8 dresses, one of which is a princess style ball gown. Wish me luck. I will show you photos later.


  1. Started following you recently. Love your paintings.

  2. OMG! You sew too? 8 dresses in a month? My hat is off to you. I think I'm doing pretty good to sew a patch on a pair of blue jeans. I made a shirt once about 23 years ago. That was enough for me.

  3. Carol, I see what you mean , Your work is lovely.I see your on Etsy I will add you to my favorites!

  4. You make absolutely LOVELY paintings! Good luck with the dresses, can't wait to see them :)

  5. Wow, you are very very talented! I really must learn oil painting, so beautiful. Can't wait to see more!

  6. Great painting, excelent volume and glass feeling... love it!
    Can't wait to see the princess style dress...
    Best regards,

  7. Nice work... I like it!

    Now I'm curious about the dresses!


  8. Love the cherry painting. I can't wait to see the dresses. Good luck!

  9. Wow! You'll be busy, but happily I'm sure. Do show us the dresses (and of course keep painting when you have time). :)

I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world. I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the broode
