So Glad to be Back and You are Big....

Been down with a bad back spasm the last few days.  I am such a workalcoholic that I get so tired my back goes out.  It doesn't happen because I didn't bend my knees when I picked up something heavy. or when I accidentally fall, or if I reach higher than I should.  It just goes out.  I get to the point when I am really working hard and proud of my accomplishments and then, I guess my body says, Vacation time!  I was getting ready to go to bed and as I pulled up my pajama bottoms -Yikes!  Out for two days.  Oh well.  I'm back and trying not to work so hard but that is like asking time to stand still.  Not going to happen.

The other day I was delivering a Christmas package to my neighbor who is single and lives with her toy poodle named Yogi.  Her sister was visiting her.  Yogi looked to me like he had really porked out and I almost said, Yogi, you are so fat but I caught myself after a long pause and said big!  The neighbor's sister cracked up.  Did you hear that long pause before she almost said fat?  Sometimes the insults just come out no matter what you do.  The dog is like the neighbor's child so I hope I am not in the dog house.

Be sure to check out my Limited Time Promotions on Fine Art America and look for my best-selling print, Reaching Out, on The Mindy Project.  So far, the drawing has been visible on the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 8th episodes.  There will be new episodes starting January 8th!

Also, look for me and my paintings on The Hour of Joy on Fox TV out of Roanoke, VA.  My appearance is tentatively set for April 3rd,2013!

Painting Away and The Enabler

I am, as always, working very hard at my paintings.  Soon, I will have to take a break and get ready to be on The Hour of Joy which will be taped January 26th.  I am apprehensive about appearing on TV but I think it will be a great opportunity to attract more patrons to my work.  All I want to do is paint but I have to do other thing to promote it or I can't find homes for them.  I am real excited about my current small painting.  I think it is one of the most sensitive paintings I have ever done.  I look forward to uploading it when it is dry.

I like to sort laundry in our bedroom while my husband is watching TV.  When I get to his stuff I gently throw it at him and usually cover his face.  It is a fun game we play.  I told him that I must really be an aggressive bully to throw underwear at my husband.  His reply was, what about me?

I must be a shameful enabler to let you do it.  It obviously doesn't take a lot to entertain us.

 Don't forget to check out my most popular print, "Reaching Out" on The Mindy Project.  So far, there have been a lot of shots of it on the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 8th episodes.

Also, be sure to check out my canvas print specials on Fine Art America!

Pleased to sell another print of Burning Shore and It isn't funny...

I am so pleased to sell another print of one of my favorite paintings to a great patron in Mobile, Alabama!  The painting is owned by a New York patron and I miss it.  It was one of my Small Gem paintings and was 5"x7".  It is great that patrons can get a huge print of this beautiful painting.  It is one of my most expressive works.

I can't think of anything funny right now.  It is hard to joke around after tragedies.  Humor is one of life's joys that keeps me going but I can't help but be quite sad right now.  My son is no longer in school but if I had gotten a call that he was killed at school I'm not sure I would be here right now.

I am looking forward to being on The Hour of Joy on April 3rd!  It will be great to have my paintings on TV.  I love what I do and will be thrilled to talk about my work to such a large audience.

So far on The Mindy Project my best-selling print "Reaching Out" has been seen on the2d, 4th, 5th, and 8th episodes!  It is great to watch a show and see my work there!

Be sure to check out my weekly large canvas print specials on Fine Art America and Happy Holidays to everyone!

Pleased to sell another original painting and An apple a day...

I am so pleased to sell another original painting!  This one was a favorite floral called "Color Flow".  A very nice young man drove down from Washington and Lee University to buy it for his girlfriend for Christmas.  They are both about to graduate and plan to be corporate lawyers.  I wish them well!  Paintings can be the greatest gift.  They only go up in value and it is a gift from the heart and soul of someone who lives to paint.  I only wish I didn't always have dirty dishes in my future.  Not to mention dirty laundry and dirty house.  I still get to paint because I am nothing if not organized.  I have my faults, but I am determined to paint and nothing stops me.

The other day I mentioned to my fructose intolerant husband that I usually eat an apple a day so I guess I keep the doctor away.  His response was if he ate an apple a day the doctor would be here all the time taking all his money.  What kind of crazy diet asks people to give up most vegetable and fruits?  Fructose intolerance is a mean trip.

Be sure to look for my best-selling print, "Reaching Out", on The Mindy Project.  I am looking forward to being on TV myself this spring on The Hour of Joy.  Joy Sutton is quite an interesting lady and I agree with her that we need a program of good news.

Sold another large canvas print and They took my house...

I am so pleased to sell another print of one of my most popular works of art, "Natural Rhythm".  This is my first sale in Arizona so now I have originals and prints in 20 states, Washington D.C., Canada, Germany, and Australia.  My work marches on!  As I have said before, I want to cover the world and die with a paint brush in my hand.

Looking forward to my TV appearance on The Hour of Joy this spring with Joy Sutton who wants to be the next Oprah.  Such an energetic lady!  I have no doubt she will succeed and I am honored to be on her show.

It is still great fun for me to see my most popular drawing, "Reaching Out", on The Mindy Project on Tuesday nights at 9:30 on Fox TV.  So far there have been a lot of shots on it on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th episodes.  I hope to see it this Tuesday.

I usually look to my husband for something funny but this one is on me.  I have a new spin on all those commercials that claim you can get a lot of money and keep your car.

I got the money I needed and they didn't take my car!  This is great!  Since they took my house, I am now living in it!  Zoom, zoom!
