About Me

My photo
I've been an artist my whole life and have had so many exciting art related jobs, which makes me kinda of a jack of a bunch of trades. I'm also college grad with a BFA and went to the High School of Performing & Visual Arts here in Houston. Visit my shop at Etsy and I promise you'll most likely receive a Smile to take with you! I decided to mention that about 10 years ago I was on chemo for 2 years. The chemo worked, but left me with other Heath issues, such as a case of Fibro which left me with having to get disability.Sad news, since I had a great career, that I can not work anymore. With my Faith and determination, I am determined to still do my art. My art gives me inspiration and thank you God! Oh, and please follow my blog! I'd love to have yall join me in my show and tells and also would love to hear what yall have to show and tell!:)

Giving Honor to Peanut Jones & Loved Ones that Have Passed on

Some of yall have not seen the real Peanut that lived to be 20 yrs. old. I thought yall may want to see what inspires me to continue to portray her in my artwork and so I'm showing a picture of her again. I got a wonderful letter from the father of my fiance,Anthony that passed on in 1989 from a drive by and I was with him. He was from England and I have been keeping in touch with his father since I was with Anthony, even after his mum passed 4 years ago. Anthony loved Peanut so much and I can remember very clearly how they would relate with one another. I guess, his father's, Chris, letter today that I just now read, brought on some memories that is forcing me to write this post. Memories are grand, and loved ones last forever.

Heaven is the real "Home" to me and you may call me nuts, but that is my spiritual way of thinking. I think they all watch over us and that we never lose our loved ones, including our friends. Valentine's Day is approaching and some of us are single, or have lost our loved ones, only to be a thought away, really. I may have mentioned this before, but loved ones include everyone we love on Valentine's Day. And if you are thinking of your loved ones in Heaven, they are included, because I truly believe that they never died....they are always, maybe not in a human body anymore, but thier spirits live on forever.
I started this post to say I am going to extend my contest longer until I get more than 10 entries and then I noticed that most people are favoring the "Peanut Love" on canvas, and as my mind drifts towards Anthony's father's letter I just now read....I just wrote down my thoughts. Maybe it's a message I'm suppose to mention to those that have lost loved ones to reassure that you never ever lose loved ones. I'm very sensitive to the spiritual world in that way. Maybe I needed to talk to someone about that feeling of loosing a loved one.
Whatever the case may be, I hope that some how I may have made someone feel better if you are feeling gloomy.
I want to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day! And to tell yall that I have extended my contest for another week, being on the 25th of February!!! Please check out my main post about the contest too as I have reworded it! You never know, I may have made new special deals!
