Countdown to Drive-Off

If you buy a brand new RV, its a miniature version of moving into a newly built house.  It’ll have everything you need to just start living there, but it will not have things like bushes and trees, curtains, furniture, bedding, dishes, etc.  My new Airstream has curtains and furniture, so I’m one-up on that […]

Sunny Flower

I love to plant surprises throughout my home, my life, my work.  I like to look at things more than once and find those surprises; things I missed before.  Look closely when you’re in my life.

A Good Read

I have shared my progress on this painting with you.  The painting is done.  I am still inspired when I look at it.  What will become of it – that is the question on my mind now.  Will it hang in my studio for the duration of my life?  Is it meant for someone?  Will […]

Book Cover

Dan and I met twice in recent days and reviewed our past progress on the new book series.  We laid out the storyboard for the first book and handed out assignments.  My part is to design the book cover and to buy the domain name for the new website.  We’ll reconvene the end of May […]

Dragon Fly Minus The Fiery Breath

I was sitting in my booth at the National Oyster Festival and someone suggested that I draw a dragon fly.  TaDa!  Here’s to you, requester!
