It is always such a pleasure for a past customer to stop by & want to share how they framed their paintings or where they ended up hanging their paintings they purchased from me. Here are a few examples:

I am so excited to finally show these paintings to y’all! Check out the site!! It has truly been my joy to paint each painting. I love it when God gives me an idea & I get to see it actually happen in real life. I painted this series to honor & bless Sherry Pierce Hartfield. Click on “about the paintings” (link above) to read the whole story. I also want to encourage each reader, male or female to get a yearly check up. It is so very important to know what’s going on with your body & the earlier you can catch a problem the better. Even a yearly check up may not detect a problem. So listen to your body, if you think something may be wrong…go get checked out! And last I want us to remember the ladies in our lives that have passed away due to cancer. They remind us that life is fragile. Time on this earth will pass, sometimes to quickly. Pat Isbell was one of those ladies to me. She was my best friend’s mom. I spent as much time with the Isbell’s as I did with my own family. I have so many wonderful memories of Mrs. Pat & I’m thankful for the impact she had on my life.

Psalm 118:24, “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” I hope you enjoy the pink only paintings!

We are having a great summer! Filled w/ kids playing, vacations and not to mention…work! I’m so grateful for these jobs that have kept my art business going this summer. Right now I’m working on a special project that I can’t wait to share once it’s complete. The end of August is my deadline so stay tuned! Here are some phone pics of summer work. The quality doesn’t do the paintings justice but it’s what I’ve got😉.

This series of paintings are from an interior design job. Lots of metallics & neutrals.

This is a client commission I got through the spring art festivals. I wish I had a better photo…these tend to look so washed out in the sun. In person you can see the layers much better. There is a faint orange wash on this series that I love!

A couple bought the bottom painting at the MCAC & commissioned me to paint a partner for it (top). I think it turned out nicely & loved that I got to see it in their home!

This job came from a hometown friend in Meridian MS. She had seen another set of paintings I did w/ this color scheme. I LOVE this series the most!

I have been looking forward to the MBAA spring art festival. Last year was my first year to participate & it was awesome. This year didn’t disappoint! Beautiful weather in a beautiful venue plus great customers equals a blessed & grateful girl. Here are some pics from the day:

I have a few days to rest & then back at it for the Magic City Art Connection this Friday-Sunday. 10-6 in Linn Park, downtown Birmingham.

Come see me this Saturday, April 6, from 10-6 in Downtown Meridian. I am so excited to be back in my hometown this weekend. It’s been a loooong time since I’ve done this festival, in fact I think I was pregnant w/ Tucker the last time I was there? Here are a few things that I will have for sale.

These are some of my favorites from the weekend. (Not in picture order;)) Sculpture by Eric Johnson, mixed media paintings by Rickie Higgins, folk art by Brian Bohanan & paintings by my friend Chi Roach. It was such a nice event. I made several new art friends & collectors. The Women’s Riverchase Club put on the event & they were so hospitable. I look forward to showing next year!

Hyunmee Lee’s exhibitions are totally inspiring me today. Let’s pretend we are there…

Amazing, right? Large scale, bold and active gestural brushstrokes compose Lee’s awesome paintings. I read that she studied calligraphy as a child and was deemed the best among her siblings. I think that is so interesting and am not surprised. I can see the influence calligraphy on her work. All images via Hyunmee Lee’s website.
