Relax - Life is good

Since, we started this cross country adventure, I have not done much relaxing.

In December, everything we had and knew was loaded into a semi truck and moved across the country to a rental house. In the last 7 months, three kids started in new schools, I unpacked all the boxes, one graduated, we found the house of our dreams, we celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary, we repacked everything we had and knew, and we moved again.

Thankfully, life is slowly started to look like a new normal. So, I will finally get to start painting and blogging again.

One day in early April, I celebrated the Anniversary of my birth and took a day and hid in my rented studio space. (AKA the formal dining room) This painting is what came out of me. Here in the southwest, there are some beautiful colors in the skies around sunset each evening. I painted this painting remembering those skies.

Some up close pics of all the wonderful texture. This is one of those paintings with a great surface that makes you want to reach out and touch it.


Sorry there are no instructions or even a product list of what I used. It was just time for me to just release and RELAX from all the outside stresses.

I like it both horizontal and vertical.

This painting is a signed (on the back) original by me. Even with a new house, I can not keep everything I paint, so if you are interested in Relax, this piece can be purchased on Etsy at:

Thanks to everyone who has helped my family physically, emotionally and prayerfully over the last 7 months. You guys have all been our rock!!!

God Bless!!
