Welcome to my blog! 

I want to begin by thanking each and every one of you for finding happiness and joy in my artwork.  I started this journey almost three years ago and everyday since then, has been a new adventure.  I feel that having a blog will give you a glimpse into my life as an artist.  I absolutely love creating in my studio, but equally as much, I love the conversations that I have with you.

Today I thought I would share how I title my paintings.  You'll notice that almost always my paintings are given a name. The majority of my paintings are female and I think of them as my daughters.  When I was younger I always imagined life with my daughters.  God choose to give my husband and I two very special boys instead.  So my paintings are my daughters, and each of my daughters needs a name.  I am drawn to "old-fashioned" names.  My own sons are Luke and Lincoln.  These classic names remind me of a simpler, more innocent time.  I feel, these older names are like great vintage dresses - eternally beautiful and never go out of style.  While I am creating in my studio a name usually comes to me, but if one hasn't I go to an online baby name database and find the perfect name.  I often get suggestions from you as well, and I love hearing them!  You'll be happy to know that I record them all in my art journal and come back to them often.

Have a lovely day and keep sharing your beautiful names with me!
