The top two paintings will be for sale at Edmond Library in June as part of the Edmond Art Association Spring Show. I will also be finishing enamel jewelry for the A Jeweler's Art Gallery for the Paseo Arts Festival. I am so excited about both events. I hope you come by to see my work and the work of other Oklahoma Artists. It will be absolutely fantastic.

I have had a great year teaching. There were lots of tears, for hard and happy times, but through it all I am thankful for having the chance to teach art. I got a wonderful note from a student saying that I was inspirational to him and that he was thankful that I gave him the opportunity to see he had great talent in art. WOW! It was all worth it and I look forward to other days when I can do the same for other students.

That being said, I am terribly excited about spending my summer with my girls and painting, and visiting family and friends. I have several PD workshops I have to attend for school, but I hope to finally be able to paint for four hours straight. I hope your school year was a fabulous one also and hope that you have many things to look forward to in the summer. I will continue to show my progress. Thank you dear friends.

Labor of Love

Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD  Private Collection in San Saba, TX First, I must say that everything I paint is because I absolutely love. I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture.

I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. 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
