Country Road, 8"x10", oil
Sometimes giving a painting a title is the hardest part. Nothing I thought about seemed to fit so, I showed it to my husband and asked what first came to mind. He answered, "a country road" so, Country Road it is. For now, anyway.

Freudenburg Farm, 8"x10", oil, SOLD
This is a scene very near where I live. It never fails to capture my eye, no matter the time of day. This was an early morning scene so, the lighting was still a little blue. I have more paintings planned that will reflect how it looks at different times of day.

Early Texas Spring, 8"x10", oil
Fellow artist Bonny White and her husband, Roy, recently hosted a paint out for the Texas Paint Slingers. The fields were full of very bright and wonderfully fragrant wildflowers, which just glowed when the sun came out. Not only did the Whites kindly offer us the run of their ranch, they fed us some pretty darn good eats. Thank you Bonny and Roy for a great day!

I am very honored to have had my painting featured in this month's issue of Gallery Guide West. The ad is for the New Braunfels Art League, an art organization that has been very close to my heart for many years. It is not only a wonderful gallery but a teaching center, which is abuzz just about any day of the year.
Workshops for 2012 include award winning artists such as Deborah Paris, Myra Knapp, Kim Casebeer and Qiang Huang to name but a few. Please check the NBAL website to see who else is on the schedule. And be sure to check back often as workshops are being added on a regular basis.

It is that time of year again; the time for setting goals for the year ahead. It is also time for evaluating the progress of the goals that were set for this year. I am very pleased to report that all but one have been achieved and the final one is on schedule for completion before the year is out. I am equally pleased to have found that, as a result of the goals that have been met, more opportunities have presented themselves.
Below is an excerpt of a post I made around this time last year. I encourage you to give it a try. Be sure to write down your goals and keep them where you can refer to them throughout the year. Doing so will greatly help keep you on track. It’s the first step in that thousand mile journey that makes and keeps you accountable to yourself.
Some suggest sharing your goals with someone who will keep you accountable. Others believe it is better to keep them to yourself to avoid the naysayers. You are the only one who knows which approach is best for you but, whichever you choose, write your goals down. Even if you have a support group, you are ultimately accountable only to yourself and your list will help you do just that. There is something almost magical about it, too! Don’t believe me? I challenge you to try it and report back to me a year from now. I’m telling you, it’s magic!
Here is the excerpt from one year ago:
Make sure that your goals are:
It is a wonderful and wise way to set and accomplish your goals. Write them out and review them periodically throughout the year to keep yourself on track. Being able to check them off your list will create even more momentum.
Now, go forth and set your goals!
