All of you know I am an artist...but did you know.....

All of you know that I am an artist. What some of you may not know is that my sister is also an artist. She creates wonderful pieces!

I won an award!

I am very excited! The top painting "Aires Rising" won 2nd place at the 2010 Old West and Rodeo art show, which is sponsored every year by Clovis Art Guild. The 2nd painting "Waiting on the Assay" got an honorable mention in the Theme "Old West & Rodeo". I am especially happy with these two awards, because the Judge, Sue Porter, is very hard to please. Thanks Sue!…

I lay down my life for you for a moment, to tell you of a wonderful story that I hope will give you Hope.

Artist Trading Card - Central Valley Group

Friends and Artists, we're forming an Artist Trading Card group so we can hold swaps every so often, and maybe do some group international swaps. Our first swap is at Twee in the Tower April 24 at 2PM. It's fun, free and easy, and a great way to meet some of your fellow artists and trade ATCs for your collection. Pretty much anything goes , but check out the guidelines on our group page.
