Exciting news!

I am so thrilled to announce I am opening a working studio inside Fox & Clover Marketshops! It’s time to make dreams come true and I’m on my way to making that happen. Stay tuned for new and exciting things happening at Thru The Paintbrush 🖌

Happy September 🍃🍂🍁

Summer is over already and fall is just around the corner from us 🍃🍂🍁 . What a busy month it has been with so many new things happening around me. My youngest son is away at college, my mother has moved to Colorado, my middle son has moved back home for awhile and my baby girl is a junior in high school and learning to drive. My head is kinda spinning haha. It’s time to relax and take a breath. Happy fall ya all!

Exploring Ames as a family ❤💛

Still not painting but I’m staying very busy. We are doing the college drop off thing this week. 😥 He’s the one on my right and yes you guessed it I’m the one with the mom shirt on.  This is so very hard they grow up so fast 💔 I may be sad but I am also beaming with pride 😊

August is here

August is here already! Wow the summer is flying by! So much I planned to do but didnt. My son leaves our home in Colorado and starts college across the country in 2 short weeks and my mothers health problems have me here in Illinois. I wish I could be in two places at once. 💔 life can change so quickly. Enjoy the moments you have with the ones you love and remember “If life gives you lemons make sweet tea” ❤🍋🥤#thruthepaintbrush #sweettea #watercolorcalendars

Spreading love

Yesterday with the help of some of my family we delivered over sixty mini Valentine’s to the residents at a local nursing home. Sharing my art and putting smiles on faces is my kind of day!

My sisters home

On a recent visit back home to Illinois I started to look around my sistets house. As I looked I discovered so much of my artwork scattered throughout her home that I was suddenly overcome with joy. There’s something very heartwarming about seeing your hard work and passion treasured  like that.❤
