Thank you to my silly little sister for nominating me for this Brilliant Blog Award! As you know, my sister Jennifer is J. Pease of Hot Tamale Art Studio She sells wonderfully creative folk art paintings on Ebay. I love her style. I don't have time to keep up with many blogs, but I do enjoy reading another blog, Wonders of Whimsy Her name is also Jenny and she makes some very beautiful dolls. I can't believe how fast she can create such detailed works of art. I used to sew dresses for my daughters when they were little and I ended up spending more time cursing the sewing machine! I do like to look at all the paintings of the other folk artists on ebay. It's funny how you get to know their work and can recognize who painted them before you read the text, like Tascha and Danita. I admire artists with a distinct style. I love when I scroll down the Ebay gallery and notice a new painting of my sister's. You can hear an audible "awwww" from my computer room.
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
