Paint ‘Taint Paint


OMG! There is paint and then there is p’aint.

When you purchase a can of paint, pre-mixed from the local hardware store you are beyond committed! Accompanying the can are an unusually large brush, stirring stick, some product called spackling , an instrument with which to apply that, large heavy “cups” to pour your p’aint into and a’lass but necessary a huge folding ladder, along with plastic for body and space defense.

The moment you leave  the hardware store, you are committed! I did this two weeks ago to paint a portion of my kitchen and I have been rowing against the current ever since!

Okay, the p’aint is on the walls. I am stunned, exhausted and completely disoriented!

Guess what?! My next project is to convert an upstairs room into an art studio…if I have to apply p’aint to create a space for painting, OMG!!!

Paint ‘Taint just Paint!

He is With Us

He is with us on our journeys. He is there when we are home. He sits with us at our table. He knows about funerals and weddings and commencements and hospitals and jails and unemployment and labor and laughter and rest and tears. He knows because He is with us – He comes to us again and again – until we can say, It’s You! It’s You! …Bob Benson

New Work

King Protea is an exotic Hawaiian plant. The blooms captivated me at first sight.

I had a little fun with art and photography by drawing a couple of these magnificent blooms and using the photo app to enhance the colors in photo two.

My ideas came from art and photos on Pinterest.
