Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am so pleased with my new Blue Ridge painting of Rock Castle Gorge!  It isn’t finished so I may be taking that back but I hope not.    I am half way through the second layer and it is really coming together!  I will have a new Youtube of my latest Suggestion painting up tomorrow! 

Rolling along, getting things done!  Have a great weekend everyone!  I am off to a Baby Shower on this beautiful Saturday!

The billboard contest is still on!  Please vote for my work!

The company that handles my print sales is hosting a billboard contest and I would greatly appreciate your votes!  The contest ends July 31st!  Here are the popular paintings I entered and the links to the contest are directly below the image! 

I didn’t realize until people started notifying me, but FAA requires voters to set up an account.  It is free and you can cancel at any time.  Also, if you ever want a print of mine on just about anything, FAA is the place to go!  My work is great for gifts for the person that has everything.  You can’t buy a yoga mat with my artwork on it in a store!  Check it out!


Thank you!

Now that was a Leg Cramp that would have brought down Godzilla!

I used to get night leg cramps all the time until my husband pointed out that I should drink more water.  Since I have taken his advice they don’t happen much but when I do get one it is a doozy!  I hate the way they start to ease up and then cramp up again for even more pain. 

Usually, if I point my toe up the cramp goes away but last night it would not quit.  It flared up over and over again and finally eased up.  Too much activity is also a cause.  Guess I better slow down! 

Now I know that is not going to happen.
