Nature Boy and I have been working hard to get ready for this show season! We are excited to be doing some old favorites, and some new places this year!! I've got a lot of new things coming up..the children's book should be out soon, and I have a couple of secrets ...can't say anything..but, I will say they involve guitars and clothes....shhhh..we do not want to let the cat out of the bag..hehhee.
My daughter sent me a present yesterday....an awesome Galaxy Samsung Note...it's an AMAZING large phone, and I LOVE IT. It's super fast too..can't wait to use it!! She is going to be 27 years old in 12 days, and I am in awe of the person that she has become!! She is weight lifting, and has lost almost 100 pounds this past year!! That in itself is a major feat of accomplishment!! I am so proud of her!!
Well..that's about it...Keep my little secret, and Live Artfully!!

I have been painting. I am no longer showing ALL of my paintings..but, I will post one or two a week. When shows start, and they start selling, I will post them..but, I've been painting like crazy, and I post the pictures to Facebook, and they immediately sell..and I'm grateful, and I'm blessed, but I HAVE to get up inventory for shows...that is just the simple fact of the matter!
I won $12 on the Georgia Lottery Powerball this week!! I was so happy!! YES, I would have loved to win millions, but I will be happy that I won more than I spent! If I won millions--there are so many people ( I have a list already written up), that I would give money to, and help.
Well..that's about all..I am boring this week. Live Artfully!!

Ok--The painting above is the first painting for 2014--then, I decided that I needed a week off from everything..to regroup, refresh and revive after the busy holidays. I feel like all I have done is ship paintings for the last 3 months!! I'm not complaining!! I am VERY blessed!! Thank you Lord!!
I am going with a cleaner look this year. I have revamped my website, and now my blog.
I have a big list of "things I want to accomplish" in 2014.
Among them are:
1. Buy a kiln, and learn how to work with clay.
2. Do 20-30 shows.
3. Produce bigger work than ever before (the painting above is 36 x 48 inches!)
4. Work in a more disciplined manner. Not so scattered all over the place.
5. Blog REGULARLY. I think I will make Thursday morning my normal blogging day. That way--it's the day before I leave out for shows, and everyone will know where to find me.
There are a few more things..but, I am keeping it simple, so I don't overwhelm myself.
I have added a new section to my website--Called Chuck's Nature Photography, so check it out HERE. This is what my husband loves to do...he walks daily in the woods, and takes the most beautiful pictures!! I have also added sections called AVAILABLE ART and AVAILABLE ART ON CARDBOARD. So if you are interested in any of them, just let me know!
Well, that's about it. Live Artfully!!

Anyway..Feel free to join in with me, and take the first hour of your day to sketch and force yourself to do something different. Doing the same old stuff day after day after day is not what being an artist is about. So..step out, and do something different.

It seriously overwhelmed me ...the sheer volume of art that I have created in 5 years. In March, I will have been painting for five years. I am so very blessed to be able to paint, it is all I ever wanted to do...and it's been a great 5 years. I cannot imagine how much art (Good Lord willing) that I will create in the next 5, 10 or more years...it excites me..and fuels my heart and soul!
