I haven't written very much lately so much is going on with my life. Everything
seems to be going so fast it is unbelievable. My oldest daughter is retiring from the Marine Corp
and is moving here. Hooray! Like that isn't awesome enough...My youngest daughter called last week and told me that she is moving here also. Unbelievable. My prayers are being answered one by one. I am so blessed.

I Still Believe

I Still Believe
Painted in 2010 but thought I would share with you once again....
I remember when I was a little girl someone told me that there is
no Santa. That Christmas I still got gifts which I didn't deserve. I still felt the
magic in the air and felt the love of my family at Christmas so no matter what
people may say I still Believe.

Snowed In

Snowed In
In a wonderland of snow is a place called familiar. A place which can find refuge from the cold.
This day I am lucky. This day the barn I stumbled across has a fireplace. Old and filled with cob webs but a sight of comfort as I fumble through my pocket and find a lighter. A little dry hay and a small fire which gets bigger as I add more hay. Warmth precious warmth. I peek out and realize what it is like to be snowed in.

One Red Barn

One Red Barn
Somewhere out in the country surrounded by the stillness of life is a barn. A red barn that
has been standing for quite a long time. It is as if that barn red paint makes it
invincable to the sun and rain and snow. It is like some powerful force surrounds it and helps it to
last throughout the ages.
Another glowing beauty on a small 4x4 canvas panel.

Country Red

Country Red
Today I decided to start a series of barns. Two things they will have in common is that
they will all have barns and second they will be painted on the small 4x4 canvas panel. They pack
a lot of punch to be so little. How many will I paint? I don't know. I will paint them until one day you will visit and see something else where a barn might have been.
Oil painting on 4x4 canvas panel yes that is 4inches x 4inches.

Hoar's Frost

Hoar's Frost
Once I lived in Wyoming and it would be so cold. Some days we would go out early and
the air would be filled with those sparkling crystals and everything would be crisp and white.
It had a beauty like no other. I loved it.
