So I found out today that its been 4 years since I signed on with WordPress, what the what?! As my Papa used to say, great day in the morning! Its been a good 4 years with them, so here’s looking at many more!


You Have A Voice, Vote!

A vote is like a rifle: its usefulness depends of the character of the user-President Teddy Roosevelt

Did this last year for a contest about social activism and the topic I picked was voting. I didn’t win but I was pretty proud of my design! Voting is so so so vital and even one vote can change things, so in this mess of an election year so far, please be determined to vote!!

#FBF March Of The Pigs

All the pigs are all lined up/ I give you all that you want/ Take the skin and peel it back/ Now doesn’t that make you feel better?-March Of The Pigs

Love Weekend!

In lieu of an art post today, I’ll give you  some gospel! Although there are hundreds to choose from, my two favorites scriptures on love are:

John 3:16 (Obviously):

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

And John 15:13:

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

So there you go, go forth and show some luuuurve not just this weekend but all the time!


Maddi & Maci

I don’t want my children to be what I want them to be. I want them to be everything God created them to be-Jon gordon

Since I am childless (and therefore rendered a moot and terrible person according to society), I live vicariously through my nieces, nephew, and my friends’ kids. I painted these pieces for my friend Brandi and her two daughters. All she said is “I want something for the girls’ room, anything with zebra prints, lime green, and hot pink”. This was what I came up with!

Whale Carrier

There is no folly of beasts of the Earth which is not outdone by the madness of men-Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Here’s a little piece involving a whale. Although they sometimes freak me out thinking about their massive size, I love whales! Pus I really need to read Moby Dick!

Happy trails everyone!

Troy And Abby

The average dog has one request to all humankind, love me-Helen Exley

Ok so hello all! I’m back with more adventures…well art pictures and the adventures I had while creating them! So let’s get to it! Here are a couple of dogs I did for my cousin’s friend in December 2014. They are Troy and Abby…I think Troy is on the right and Abby on the left…I think. Yes its another pet portrait and its seems they are becoming my bread and butter which I do not mind at all! I love animals and I love the reactions of the owners when they see their fur babies in art form! So here is Troy and Abby’s creation journey!


Troy And Abby 16 in x 20 in Oils 2014

I think at the time, this was one of my favorite portraits I had done. When my cousin gave it to the owner, she said she cried because she loved it, so that they made me feel good. I love when art had reactions like that and knowing I did it makes me feel all fuzzy. Sp anyhoodles, if you’re interested in getting your pup or kitten or whatever kind of pet you have oil painted, drop me a line at my Etsy shop! Its kind of blank at the moment but that is a New Year’s project I have to work on!
