For not the first time, but maybe the last time, I have started a "home business". The difference with this one is that it is one I really enjoy. I've drawn and painted horses since I was (at least) five years old--that's the earliest one that my mother saved.
By the time I entered my teens, Mother had grown a bit tired of the subject and urged me to do something else with my artwork besides horses. I followed her advice and never looked back until ten years ago when it occurred to me that people might actually pay for horse portraits. I have had many exhibits of my landscapes, and sold a good number of them--but not enough to provide any kind of steady income.
I'm hoping that if I work hard and market this business well I will be able to delight my customers, make some money, and have a lot of fun doing it.

The plea is working…and so is Sky Pads 35
My last post’s plea for donations to the 501(c)3 organization that I helped found and of which I am treasurer has been heard and acted upon. Not necessarily by a coterie of readers of my blog, but enough to get … Continue reading
No, I have not left the planet
I just noticed my last post was sometime in March. I do look at and comment on bloggers posts I follow, but there hasn’t been much going on in my studio except waiting and a little bit of painting. Somehow … Continue reading
Weekend in an antique gas station
If you’ve been following me for a while, you may remember this place–it was originally a gas station, then became a victim of neglect, then was resurrected as a nostalgic tribute to the 50’s gas station. It has now become … Continue reading
Summer surprise…landscape show!
A small miracle took place on July 4th. Near the end of last year I was involved in the formation of a new art organization, Cass Area Artists, in the southwest Michigan and northern Indiana area. One of our fearlessly … Continue reading
