Blessing of the Animals

I am very fortunate that the children who I am teaching art to love animals as much as I do. It was getting a little lonely around the ranch before we moved. Even with the animals, I just could not wait to see the boys at my school where I teach art and my girlsContinue reading “Blessing of the Animals”

Bluebonnet Blues and Sunflowers too many….

This week-end has quenched my thirst for art. Being in the city versus the ranch has made it a challenge to devote time to painting.
