A little peek into the life of the naptime painter,

I am, what you would call an old-fashioned housewife with a modern day flare. I bake my own bread, grow a garden, put up home canned foods, sew, quilt, crochet, and most importantly, I paint!
Now I am going to tell you why I paint. One day I sat down infront of a canvas with a palette full of colors and a paint brush, simply because I had been feeling the urge to try it. Low and behold, I discovered the natural ability to take blobs of color and turn them into something beautiful.

Now painting, for me, is a stress reliever and a way to escape from the everyday. I have two little boys who are my life, but when they go down for a nap it is mommy time. I put on some good tunes, block everything else out, and make my canvas come to life. I get so much joy…

A little peek into the life of the naptime painter,

I am, what you would call an old-fashioned housewife with a modern day flare. I bake my own bread, grow a garden, put up home canned foods, sew, quilt, crochet, and most importantly, I paint!
Now I am going to tell you why I paint. One day I sat down infront of a canvas with a palette full of colors and a paint brush, simply because I had been feeling the urge to try it. Low and behold, I discovered the natural ability to take blobs of color and turn them into something beautiful.

Now painting, for me, is a stress reliever and a way to escape from the everyday. I have two little boys who are my life, but when they go down for a nap it is mommy time. I put on some good tunes, block everything else out, and make my canvas come to life. I get so much joy out of a finished painting. I have a fast and free style that stems from the fact that I only have a naptime to do so much. My main medium is coffee. I recently started tinting the coffee to add a touch of flare. I needed to find a way to paint that would be less harmful around my kids. I love to paint anything and everything, so the possibilities are endless.

I am not professionally trained, but I hope that when you look at these paintings, you see the beauty in the blessed gift that was given to a simple housewife.

Thank you so very much for visiting my shop, I hope you enjoy looking around!
