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!!!!

"In Their Footsteps" (40 x 16) WIP

I think I have a title for my "untitled" painting.  Thanks for everyone's input and ideas.

I’ve often wondered what it would have been like to cross the vastness of this country before there were roads.  I can only imagine what it took to traverse the rugged prairie in a covered wagon.  You could see “nothing forever” but endless grass and sky.  Sometimes as I drive the now graded and paved roads I think of myself following the trail of the early pioneers … following the trail they blazed for me.  And so, I decided to call my previously untitled painting  -  "In Their Footsteps" 

Check back in a few days for an update on painting progress.
