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.

Greg (aka “the SO”) and I visited Portugal for a week and a half over the Christmas/New Years holidays. I have just uploaded 75 photos for this blog and have little sense of how to keep you interested in them. … Continue reading
Finally, the Los Angeles adventure–
It took me way longer than I expected, even though I had promised it sooner, to get this post published. First I had to ditch my old WordPress theme because it was so antiquated that WP no longer supported it. … Continue reading
