This is only a little 6 x 6, but was such a joy to paint. I've named it PEACEFUL INLET. If anyone has any ideas of names for future paintings, I could sure use the help. I'm not very creative that way. Of if you know some wonderful site I could use to inspire titles for paintings.
I'm going to be working on a series of water and waterfront scenes. Any ideas ?????
Thanks in advance! Take care! And have a lovely day!!!!!!!
I am so excited today!!! Last night I finally broke through my "artist block". I had not painted in about three months.
I have been laid up for about six weeks with a knee injury, so I've used that time perusing the internet and looking at other artist's sites. Well, I came across an artist named Leslie Saete, and I was blown away. Her paintings made me "happy". I know that that is a simple word, but it's a very strong , all encompassing word.HAPPY... HAPPY... HAPPY! :-) Her work made me smile.
She is a contemporary impressionist palette knife painter. I had not picked up a palette knife to paint with in over 35 years. The more I looked at her paintings the more I wanted to go fine my knives.
So................ TA DA ! Here is my first palette knife painting since I was in high school. I'm very excited about it. I've had several compliments on it today. I've already taken it to the gallery and it is for sale there at 16 Main Gallery.
Stay tuned for more palette knife painting!!! Whooo Hoooo!
I also want to THANK the ASCRIBING ARTISTS for featuring me through the month of January on their website. I'm feel very HONORED. I also am blessed to be a part of the Ascribing Artist network.
"Ascribing Artists is a creative ministry bringing together visual artists who desire to ascribe or attribute their work and life to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The ministry is inspired by Psalm 29:2, "Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name" and shows that we are to be "A Reflection of His Glory" in all that we do."
Also a big "Thanks" to Gina Hurst for her friendship and all that she does to promote us all! BIG (((((HUGS))))) GINA! ! ! ! !

I want to extend a really big THANK YOU ! to the Huntsville Art Blog for featuring me and my artwork all through the month of December. This is a fabulous group of artist. I feel very honored to be chosen.
The Huntsville Art Blog does a fantastic job promoting local artists and art awareness in North Alabama. Don't miss their BLOG.
It was just two weeks ago, that we had a white Christmas. I think that was a first! But this past Sunday, January 9, we had the third largest snowfall in north Alabama in over 50 years. We had around 7 1/2 inches of snow.
The largest snowfall was in 1964. I remember that I was in the hospital at the time and all the kids were calling me , wanting me to come out and play and I couldn't , of course. Poor me :-(
The second largest snowfall was in 1987. I remember that one also. LOL I had to walk a couple of blocks to get home. Brrrrrrr-cicles!
Anyway, this snow was wonderful to behold, but it has cause many business' to be closed and the school closed all week. We just don't have the snow equipment needed here in the sunny south.
