I was recently made aware that my still life painting "Bittersweet" was given an award at the Randy Higbee Gallery's "6 Inch Squared" show in Costa Mesa, California.  I am very grateful and honored.  You can view the show online here.  Over 600 paintings are in the exhibit . . . perhaps you can get some Christmas shopping done!

Online Shopping

HALLOOO!  It's been a while as I was all bogged down working on a house-project last week.  But more about that later.  

I finally have my online store up and running.  I don't have EVERYTHING I want to put up there, but I have most of the basics -- some notecards, my 2015 calendars, giclees, belts & buckles.  It's a start.  I hope you get the chance to check it out:  

Now onto my project -- I was busy last week painting our kitchen.  It took about 6 days (with some help from my dad and husband).  We have a galley kitchen (not my favorite), however until we decide to REALLY make it over (with new cabinets, countertops, appliances - maybe even combine it with what's now the dining room), we painted the hideous dark oak cabinets, walls and ceiling.  Unfortunately neither Dan nor I took "before" photos.  Gaaahh! We're such dopes.  But here are a couple images of the new paint job anyway.  At least it's cleaned up and much brighter.  I ordered some wooden knobs that I will paint the same color as the cabinets and plan on painting the door as well.

I hope you all are doing well.  I'm behind the eight-ball as usual.  Ha!  Thanks for popping by.
