 Bid on this painting here

I have always loved the Daily Paintworks community, but when my husband was battling lung cancer I had to let my account go. I just wasn't painting.

Now I have my art studio and there is LOTS of painting going on, I re-established my account. It's an inspiration to paint as much as I can.

I love painting these little mini paintings. Makes me feel really productive. 

I use high quality mini canvases from SharksArtCanvas on ebay. They craft the best mini canvases I have found.

5 x 5" oil over acrylic and collage material

This is how I feel, adrift. So many changes happening all at once. All I can do is take a leap of faith and walk through it.

"Me and my Shadow"

Just returned from an extended trip to visit family and then a meet-up in Chadron State Park in western Nebraska. We rented a cabin with no internet service. I have a very teensy data plan so the phone was only for emergencies for seven days. Refreshing..just spent time talking and playing alphabet games. My 87 year old mother was one of my cabin mates. She was a trooper. So was her 8 year old boxer, Cami. My youngest sister joined us. My brother and his family tent camped up around the bend. I was glad we had the cabin. It got a little chilly most nights.
