Welcome to my little corner of the universe.

My journey into the world of art began by watching Mom. She could work magic with a bit of paint and a brush. I was fascinated by how she could transform a flat blank canvas into a beautiful work of art. Now, several years later, I'm continuing in the footsteps I followed as a child watching Mom. Thanks for your inspiration and guidance!!!!

New Oil Paintings Page

I added a new page under the tab on the left "My Art Pages" called "Oil Paintings". Click on the link and you'll find paintings I've done over the past couple years. I hope it's easier to navigate than to find them on the home page. The oldest are at the bottom.

Check back often to see my latest oil works in progress and new doodles. I have several ideas running through my head and blank canvases ready to go. Looking forward to a productive artistic summer.

Blue Sage Arts and Craft Show - Sterling, CO

I made it through my very first arts and craft show!!! Had a good time, sold a few pieces, and the best part was getting to make contacts with so many great people. (Important lesson learned - have business cards to hand out)

I'm in the process of rearranging my blog to include a page for prices and contact information. See the "Purchase a Doodle" link on the left.

A Space of My Own

Last week I decided I needed a space of my own--a real "My Little Corner of the Universe". So I started to transform a multipurpose sewing/laundry/office/catch-all room into my "studio". It already had the bare bones: built in cabnets, draws, counter space - but nothing was organized. I talked my husband into moving records and his farm books downstairs (that's where he does his book work any way) leaving the room all to myself.

I actually now have a space that I can call ~ "My Little Corner of the Universe"
