Custom Pet Portraits Preserve Precious Memories

 I have been doing pet portraits for about 30 years.  Like most things, it started with my pets.  Then when family members saw what I had done, they wanted portraits of their pets.  My Dad’s cats.  My sister’s dog.  And it spread from there.  I’ve lost count of how many I have done, but I […]

New Ideas for Gift Giving

 Yes, I know.  I’m not the most prolific poster.  While I’ve said it before, I am trying to be more diligent on that score.  For this holiday coming, I’ve set up a page of smaller, less expensive works that fit well in the gift giving genre.  In addition, I’m working on more!  One of my […]

Tech Savy and Art: An awkward combination?

 So, after a year or so, okay, emphasis on the “so”, I moved my old blogspot blog to this site, en toto.  I did the first steps all by my not so big self, though it did require an hour and some minor cursing from my tech guru husband.  At any rate, it’s done! Wahoos […]

A Gallery Owner’s Guide to Framing: Why it’s framed…or Why not?

 I wrote this for my newsletter and it got alot of attention…so it is for you: (PS, wrote this a few years ago, but i guess i never hit “publish” because it was still in my drafts…oops) We’ve all been there. We find a great little piece and think “I love it, but I don’t […]

Working like mad

 It’s quiet again at the gallery, at least most of the time, so I’m trying hard to get some things caught up, some things under way and some things thrown out. I know I didn’t post last week, as I was sitting on the floor, fingers freezing, working on a new project (more on that […]

Gorgeous Sunday

 It is 76 degrees with a crystal cerulean blue New Mexico Sky. Great day to be outdoors! I must confess my arms are sore though…I weed wacked all the weeds creeping onto the driveway, into the edge of the garden, along side the rasberry patch and around the back “lawn”. We have 7.5 acres of […]

To Donate, or Not

 I know it’s not Sunday (that’s usually when I post) but it is quiet here at the gallery now, and I had a great conversation with Jennifer Cavan which compells me to write. She wrote a great post on “how long does it take?” (to create a piece). And as she says, there is so […]


 I didn’t think it would happen. Our Angel Fire Divas group has been planning for a couple of months for this event, and I didn’t even pay attention because I didn’t think I could go. A day at the spa and overnight in the lap of luxury at El Monte Sagrado, here in Taos. Here […]

Beautiful Sunday Morning

 Wow. I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted! My how time flies…regardless of whether or not you’re having fun! Of course, there’s not really a good excuse. Part of it is a result of messing up my back/ribs again, yes again. Guess it hadn’t really healed before I forgot I wasn’t […]
