Portrait Swap at

Murphy and Nik

This is the completed portrait for the 2007 Portrait Swap at Here is a link to the complete show:

Nicloe Helbig painted me and I just love it! She is a very talented artist.

Now off to the studio for more painting. I am thinking about starting the daily painting thing....I will try and see if I can keep up the pace for a while before making a commitment. It will definitely be after all the leaves have fallen in the yard and there is no more messy yard to clean up!

Thanks for stopping by and check out the portraits at EBSQart!

New to

I have joined I love the website. I don't know why I have not joined before. I am going to call it quits on any more websites. I am starting to spend more time on the computer than in the studio. My art is now available for purchase on the following websites just search by my name:

or you can purchase directly from me with your paypal account.

I will be back in the studio tomorrow painting something new! I will be posting my "Art Swap" portrait tomorrow.

Thanks to all my collectors for your support and I hope making my art available at these websites will make purchasing more convenient.

New to Squidoo

Lost Marbles Series Seven

So many websites, so little time. I have a new "lens" at I really do like this site. It gives links to current paintings on eBay of mine and some of my favorite artists too. There is also a spot for blog updates and other fun stuff. I will continue to blog and you can also visit my new Squidoo site:

I am almost done with the portrait of Nik and Murphy. It should be done on time for the portrait swap on but just barely. I hope she likes it. She did a wonderful job on my portrait with my two girls in the background. I love it!

I am almost recovered from my cold and I did manage to spread it to at least one other person...even though I stayed in, Courtney's friend visited over the Thanksgiving Holiday and she did catch it. Sorry Lindsay.

We had a wonderful fun and food-filled Thanksgiving Holiday. I should have just enough time to lose the Thanksgiving pounds before Christmas.

New artwork on the way....something new and different, to be listed in December.

Thanks for stopping by.

Under the Weather

California Poppies III

Available for Purchase at:

Sorry, I have not been around. Miranda came down with pneumonia and I took really good care of her, until she passed it on to me. I am not the stay-in-the-bed kind of person, but this time I really had no choice. I had Sadie (Miranda's dog) and Stella (my dog) on each side of me in the bed with a huge box of kleenex and we slept and coughed and sneezed for days! I did get my flu shot earlier this month and was quite proud of myself, being proactive to stay healthy and busy this is not even cold yet! Needless to say, I am off to a slow start to the busiest time of the year.

I have begun the portrait in the "Portrait Swap" contest at but I do not like it and I have started over. Hopefully, this new start will be better.

I will try to get new art posted soon, but bear with me. This is the time of year for commissions for Christmas gifts and free painting time is hard to come by.

Courtney is coming home for Thanksgiving, so I am off to buy tons of food for the Holidays!

Thanks for checking in!
