I've Been Tagged

by the wonderfully talented artist Jeanne Illenye.

Here are the rules: 1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog. 2. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. 3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as wellas links to their blogs. 4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

5 things about me? hmmmmmm.....

1. I'm an identical twin, older than my sister by 4 minutes ... I'm the bohemian one (or as some have lovingly put it ....the evil twin ;)
2. My life journey has taken me on several paths including a few years spent as a dental hygienist; a managing partner in 2 small restaurants; and partner in an event management company.
3. Our house in Arkansas was also severely damaged by a storm in '92...does that make me a storm magnet?
4. We have 4 precious dogs, all rescues......once had a 4 foot iguana named Pabo.
5. Just a few of my favorite things include my son (ok, he's not a thing), soy lattes, anything lemon and country western dancing.

I would like to tag the following extraordinary artists......

Edward B. Gordon
Lorraine Klotz

Daily Painters Virtual Studio Tour


Welcome to the Daily Painters Studio Tour -- virtual that is. Well, this is my little studio for the time being. Actually, its a corner in one of the driest rooms in the house since the first storm damaged our home back in September. Insurance delays and three storms later finds me moving into a steel office building in a few days...for a couple of months they tell me. I'll be able to watch the reconstruction and a day to day view of the house coming back together again. Half of my things have been moved out already and I'm in the process of shipping several paintings to a gallery in Texas for a show later in January. So c'mon in.....its a mess, boxes are everywhere..... but its dry. ;)

Red Shoe Dailies -- "Rain on Me"













Just a quick little painting on a 4"x4" canvas block. With all the rain and construction, I haven't had as much time to paint as I would like. I do hope to start posting a little more regularly once I'm in my new temporary "dry" studio.

I posted previously about damage our house sustained in a storm on Sept 1. Since then, without going into detail, we have been battling with insurance over repair costs and extent of damages. Long story short, we sustained additional damage from a storm this past weekend including a ceiling falling in. Therefore, Red Shoe Dailies is on a short vacation just while I'm reorganizing. I will post paintings again in the very near future, hopefully within a couple of days.
