Did You Know

That art does not have to exactly match the decor. Art is a personal choice and when one chooses a piece it has spoken to the person. It evokes a pleasant memory. It depicts the same interests of a person. When you see it and walk by it everyday it should make you happy. This is the way art fits into a home, whether it is an original piece or an archival reproduction.

This painting; “No Goldfish Allowed” will be hanging in the Artlink Regional Artists Show From January 4, 2019 to February 8, 2019. The opening reception is January 4 from 5pm to 8 pm. Artlink is located at
300 East Main Street
Fort Wayne, IN

An archival reproduction can be ordered at the Art Shop.

growing by leaps


This was taken last monday, january 18th. It was starting to grow nicely.


Here is a little different angle. I did notice someone had been playing in the potting soil though, if you look in the upper left corner. So I had to move it to the fireplace mantle.


Here it is 10 days later, much taller with a baby sprouting up the side. I am very impressed with this and it is really nice to have something growing during these winter months!


On this last tuesday the 26th I made my way to ArtLink. They had three different shows going on. One was a postcard show for a fundraiser for ArtLink. I picked up this charming etching by Paul Demarre. It just had everything I liked, the little bicycle, the tree, the flowers. It was very charming. I also wanted to see if the postcard that I submitted had made it there and it had. I am mad at myself though for not taking pictures from the other shows. It would have added to my blog post for sure.


Here is Mackie the labradoodle that I did on a 3 X 5 illustration board done in graphite. I had not done a postcard show before and enjoyed looking a learning how others sent their cards in. All of them had to be sent through the mail like a real post card. The post office clerk was funny because I was also sending a hand painted rock through the mail in an envelope so she had a few unusual items to figure out how to cost. I was happy with my Mackie drawing and thought I picked up her eyes pretty well, faces are important. That’s it for now, thanks for checking in!
