One of my college friends is an artist who paints from the heart. She took a simple photo of mine and presto… it became a beautiful painting. You can find Sandy’s paintings at Sandy Donn on Etsy and she writes a beautiful blog filled with her paintings and her feelings about them. Sandy’s Blog I […]
My grandmother had a love of everything New Orleans. She and my grandfather’s best friend lived in NOLA and they visited him many times throughout the years. I think my grandmother loved antique shopping there more than anything and my favorite little table came from there. I also love New Orleans. I love the architecture; […]
For as long as I can remember my grandmother had a stack of unused paintings stacked in the bedroom designated for the grandkids. The closet was a typical small closet for a house built in 20s and it was very stark and clean with a few toys on shelves to the left and on the […]
We had a wonderful Father’s Day with Son #1 and Son #2 and their families. It is always such a blessing when we can get everyone together at one time. The four kiddos had such much fun with their two days of cousin fun and we enjoyed watching their sweet little faces filled with lots […]
Son #1 and family have their first family dog. Welcome to Goose who is a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. He is the cutest thing ever; although I am glad I am not the one having to house train him! We had never really seen a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon before. He immediately won all of our hearts. You gotta […]
This is a really cute vintage “ghost sign” I found last fall. Vintage ghost signs or old advertisements on old buildings are hard to find, but when I find one it is so exciting. This fall I really do hope to take a road trip through tiny little towns and locate these old signs on […]
My dear friend painted this fabulous landscape. Isn’t is spectacular? I love the starkness of the white water against the powerful rocks. You cannot stop studying this oil painting. It simply POPS. Cannot wait to see what she creates next. She is very talented.
I purchased this stunning Montana landscape a few years ago. I love the beautiful earth tones and the content. You cannot find a more beautiful view than this! I have this in my living area and every single time I walk by this painting it gives me that “feel good” feeling you want with anything you put […]
One of our friends found this cute cow while driving to Montana. Love this cow! Love that the Kwik Mart is also a gallery! Wow, this would make great farm yard art!! Thanks to M. for sharing this photo.
I have a life long friend who is a very talented artist. She lives and paints in the beauty of New Mexico. She paints people, still life, landscapes, horses and longhorns. Her works are amazing. When visiting my blog, Julia, asked if she could try painting a few of our farm animals and of course […]
A friend sent me photos she had taken of the most fun and interesting art I have seen in years. The artist is Patrick Dougherty. His art is termed “stickwork” and not only is it beautiful art, it also shows that you can combine simple pieces from nature and make them into something monumental and dynamic. My friend […]
