Happy Thursday!

The 30 paintings in 30 days challenge has ended. I really enjoyed this challenge. It taught me a lot an sharpen my painting skills as well. I am now in the habit of painting every day even if it is for only an hour. Thanks Leslie Saeta for hosting this amazing challenge. I look forward to doing it again in 2015.

For a limited time, I am offering this painting on Ebay Auction.

Just purchased my Guerrilla Box for painting outside. I am excited to be able to go mobile and do a little organized Plein Air painting!

Create A Great Day!

My Waterman


My Waterman. 6x6" Oil on Panel.

Day Fifteen of Challenge

I have always loved writing with a fountain pen. Waterman Fountain Pens are the ones I prefer to collect. I have only 2, or 3 if you count the one I lost. That broke my heart but I figure I will purchase more as I save my pennies.
I had fun painting this one. It is so sleek and feels good in your hand as the point glides on paper. My journal gets most of the usage, but I occasionally write calligraphy.
Thanks for stopping by.
Create A Great Day!

Monday's Lesson



5 Cardinal Rules For Life

1. Make peace with your past so it won't disturb your present.

2. What other people think of you is none of your business.

3. Time heals almost everything. Give it time.

4. No one is in charge of your happiness. Except you.

5. Don't compare your life to others and don't judge them, you have no idea what their journey is all about.
