Flying Lessons

Available now on Ebay

I registered for Kellie Rae Robert's e-course "Flying Lessons" over a month ago and it finally
started yesterday. For those of you who aren't familiar with the course, Kellie is teaching everything she has learned along the way about becoming successful through blogging, online marketing and online sales.
Yesterday's post was about listening to your "whispers". I've thought alot about that since yesterday. I have been listening to my inner whispers for the past year - sometimes paying attention, sometimes not. Sometimes, I hear a whisper but something holds me back - fear, usually. I have learned that I need to ignore the fear, push it away, do whatever I must to do to push it aside because usually the whispers I hear, are good ideas.
Today, I ignored the fear and e-mailed a gallery owner. I inquired if she would like to sell my work in her gallery. What did I have to lose? Nothing. What did I have to gain? Exposure, sales, everything. Later this morning, I got a beautiful e-mail back, welcoming me into the gallery! I listened to my whispers and am another step away from my goal of working as a full time artist.
I hope you enjoy my newest paintings..they are available on ebay. I currently have 10 paintings available....please take the time to visit my store. Opening bids are only a penny on all paintings!
Happy Memorial Day to good to yourself.

I am so Proud...

"Friends Know the Words"

I have realized, this week, that I have truly amazing children that have grown into responsible young adults. It's a proud moment for a mother!
My children's grandfather passed away this week. My son has not left his grandmother's side since his grandfather's passing. He has been there to greet people at the house, supported her when she needed it and supported his father in any way necessary. Tonight at the viewing, my daughter joined her brother and father in the receiving line and greeted many dignitaries, politicians, fireman, policeman and hundreds of local friends and family. My children made me so proud and I'm sure their grandfather would be proud as well!
Be good to yourself,

Three Sisters

"Three Sisters"

My sisters and I got together this weekend after a very long time apart. Unfortunately we live all over the country - me in Delaware, my sister June, in North Carolina and my sister Susan, in Alabama - so we don't see each other often.

This painting is available on ebay for bid now. It's a 16x20 canvas....I won't say which one is me....

Be good to yourself!

Graduation is OVER!!

Blooming Branches
Available on Ebay
We travelled to Clemson this weekend....left on Wednesday and followed my son down. Both sides of the family are here. My mother, who I haven't seen in about 8 years and my sister and her husband came and Michael's father's sisters and his cousin from Park City came. And of course his girlfriend and bestfriend from home came up with his dad. He was thrilled to have such a large group of people here to see him graduate. Clemson is such a strong spirited school, I can see why he loved it all these years. He left with excitement but sadness - leaving his roommate of four years was tough but he's ready to start the life that is laid out before him.
We're on the road back now and are still glowing with the love that was abundantly shared the last few days. Families are great and mine doesn't get together often enough! Today, I'm goin to see my sister that I haven't seen in five years....Seriously, I've got to do something about these visits..don't you think!
Take good care of yourself,
