Having Mail Troubles

Roses in Glass Vase and Petals,  Oil on 5"x7" Linen Panel
Private Residence in Sydney, Australia
        It has been brought to my attention that some of you may not be getting my e-mail updates, and several thought I was no longer posting or creating new work. As I was becoming more and more puzzled by the problem, I received an e-mail from another artist that said that he was also having a hard time and that Blogger was not planning on continuing the maintenance of the service.
       After a bit of help from a wonder IT friend, I was advice to use the MailChimp service. It would be an honor if you would please sign up to e-mail updates using the new sign up on the top right hand corner.
As I receive your request for subscription from MailChimp, I will remove you from the Blogger service that you signed up previously. I am so sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for you kind visits to my blog.
       Please, give me a couple of weeks to get this all figured out and all the names deleted from the old mailing list. THANK YOU.

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. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. 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

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

Still Life with Fantin's Roses ,  5"x7" Oil on linen Panel S OLD Still Life with Fantin's Roses ,  5"x7" Oil on linen Panel S OLD Cherries from Linda's Garden ,  5"x7" Oil on linen Panel S OLD My heart is filled with all your inspirational words. 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
