Thank you everybody for following my paintings! I’ve added a 15% off coupon code to my etsy shop, use HOLIDAY2015 at checkout. It will be active through December 31st.

I’m going to try to make this post appear at the top of my page through mid-December, so if you keep checking in and seeing it, just scroll down…..

Since we’re doing the whole cyber sale days, I thought I’d better get the paintings I have done up and out there right away–so I’ll be listing 2 a day for the next couple days.

I absolutely love the colors in this goat. She has fabulous curled ears, and such an engaging expression.

12″x12″ oil on stretched canvas, available here.


And this little polish bunny is 8″x8″ and available here. Don’t you want to smoosh him up and give him a kiss?


Need a reason to use my 15% coupon in my etsy shop (use HOLIDAY2015 at checkout)?



Yep, both of those are very good reasons.

Happy Thanksgiving








A Royal Affair (2012) was a movie that somehow slipped by me in 2012, probably because it’s Danish. I certainly never heard of it, but our small-town theater doesn’t play half of what’s available.

And you know what? I loved it. I only mention the movies here that I love. I hate movies that leave me indifferent, or worse, bored. (This viewing was part of a Mads Mikkelsen marathon. Stay away from Valhalla Rising (2009), it was awful, but go ahead and watch The Salvation (2014), if you like genre westerns meant to be an homage–but feel more like heavy borrowing.

If you like historical intrigue based on true events, A Royal Affair is a winner. Don’t let the “affair” theme and brief snips in the trailer fool you, this is one you can sit down and watch with kids present.

We had crazy weather yesterday, how about you? Crazy, wild wind. I saw a bent over flag pole. How does that even happen? I mean a 30-foot aluminum flagpole. How could it even catch enough wind to get bent? I’m just glad we didn’t have any damage done around home. I know areas were without power.

I haven’t been keeping up with my blog posts–boy, just busy.

This lab is 10″x10″ oil on stretched canvas. He has quite the intense look, doesn’t he?


A mix of bright colors make this pygmy goat fun. She’s 10″x10, too.


And someone told me I need more horse groupings, because horses get lonely. Which is sort of cute. So I painted a group. 11″x14″, oil on stretched canvas.


We were supposed to be having more wind tonight, and 80% chance of rain, but it’s silent out. Which means the cold is descending and here comes winter. Sigh.
