I am a 50 Y/O happily married woman from Indiana and I have 2 children, and 5 beautiful grand children that I adore. I have enjoyed “doodling” since I was a little girl, unfortunately, I guess that’s what I always considered it, doodling. I enjoyed drawing to release stress and “escape” from the reality of stressors around me. It wasn’t until about 3 yrs ago that I even considered doing anything other than share some of my work with family members. A very thoughtful woman that I worked with kept encouraging me to “set up shop” somewhere. Well, I didn’t do that but she called on me several times to do work for her and that was really the turning point for me to do anything other than “doodle.” I hope that by entering this journey I can meet others that share my passion for art, and maybe, just maybe I can brighten someones face with a portrait as well.

Traveling though time to find my love—my art

I just got to the point where I thought I actually had this down, but so much for that. I apologize for any inconvenience and I will continue to search for the source of the problem! Of course, the good news is hardly anyone looks at my work anyway, so maybe I&#…

pricing

I know that many probably will laugh at this, but here goes. I am in a quandry about pricing pieces to sell. I recently had someone ask me if I would do a family portrait of 4. Well, I explained all the details of what would be taken into consideration when it came to pricing and I finally came to an estimate of about $300.00-$400.00. He immediately e-mailed me and said that this would not be…

Television

I have not ever been a huge fan of television, but since my back injury I have been trying to structure my time somewhat because if I stand, sit, etc… too long it plays with the pain. So, I have indeed been watching more television than ever before I guess. I tend to watch educational, biography, psychological, and mystery type of shows, but I found a new channel. It is called OVTV. Ova…
