Watercolor quotes and bookmarks

This is my favorite display and here is why. My family helped me put this together last spring. The black base was a coat rack made by my oldest son for a 4-H project many years ago. The shelves were found on a shopping trip to the local craft store with my neice and got a second life after years of use displaying stamps.  My husband cut out the sign, did some painting, and put it all together to make it a free standing unit to display my art. Then my Husband and my son delivered it to where it sits now at Fox + Clover Marketshops were my daughter helps me keep it stocked with new and fun cards.

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 🖌

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 😊

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.❤
