In my spare time an artist and Etsy shop owner/operator, it is my productive hobby.
I hope you enjoy the artwork in this shop and develop an even greater appreciation for art by viewing the multitudes of paintings from this shop and hundreds of others. The ideas, impressions, and moods that has been recorded onto canvas and paper has intrigued mankind for thousands of years and is still going strong today. This is a privilege to have a chance to display this art work to a mass of people worldwide and it is encouraging and appreciated to hear response from those who take their time to view the work displayed in this shop.
On a more personal note my love for painting started at a young age long before I could paint on things without getting into trouble. Walls and bed frames were not considered proper canvases according to my mother but she had a mothers' grace with me. She helped turn my in home vandalism into a more acceptable pass-time with coloring books. Years after a divorce my mom remarried and that event proved to be very important in my life. My step-father was a masterful artist who has worked with a variety of media. He has had the greatest impact on me in every way in my quest for creating art.
The name of this shop came to me when I thought of his influence on me. Nearly every Sunday for over sixty years he has preached to an audience while drawing a chalk illustration that coincides with the message. He turned 90 Nov. 19, 2011 and has not been able to paint for several years and his "chalk talks" on Sundays have also diminished in their occurrences due to the macular degeneration he has now. I thought about this and realized the real gift is not necessarily the skill or talent to paint but the "gift of sight" from God which makes art what it is today.
I hope you enjoy the artwork that is in the shop and all those that will be there in the future.

Entered the Etsy world December 2011, there has been some discouragements but since painting is my hobby the discouragements seems to pass as I complete new pieces of art. Regardless of sales being a Etsy shop owner has been fun.
I appreciate your time and consideration, Thank You.
