So, you didn't see my show?!?!? Ugh!! pssh...

Shame on you!!! I know some people live out of state, and others don't realize Mukwonago is actually on a map, but seriously- you should have come to my show. There really is no other excuse. I don't care if your cousins uncles' baby mama was laid up in the hospital with kidney stones and giving birth to some other baby daddy child- you should have been there!!!

OMG!!! Really? You saw the show? Well, then, step up to the plate and TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!!! I need/crave/want/am practically begging for criticism- of any kind: good, bad or just plain ugly [kind of like your second cousin]. Please feel free to comment, ponder, suggest ideas and tell your friends! All of you know someone whom I don't know... tell them.. spread the word!!!

For you SELECT FEW [hint hint] who did not go and see my show... shame on you! But, since I cannot deprive you from seeing my work, I am posting it for those who didn't get the chance to see it the first time around, and for those who would like to see it again. Just to inform you [you who did not go to my show], I had great reviews, and have been invited to show again. So, when I do.... YOU HAD BETTER COME SEE THE SHOW! dammit!

THANK YOU to all who went out [some went out of their way] to come and see my art. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you... it is because of you, my confidence builds and my skills continue to improve. You are my inspiration to move forward and beyond what I have previously accomplished.

Thank you.

For the rest of you slackers- please see below:

Just an FYI- if you ARE interested in purchasing any of the above art, please email me direct [or call if you have the phone number]. The only one I absolutely cannot sell is this one:

but, I do accept commissions of any shape, size & medium. Thanks for helping to make my art great!

Keeping with the updates! Email / Foward this to your friends!

So some very exciting news: My art show is going on, and so far I have been hearing good reviews [yay! Thanks to those of have gone to see my show!!] ...

I don't know if any have sold yet, but if you want to buy, most are under $100!!! Also, the wonderful husband [FRED] has been working with me to do the frames [he cut the ones in the show] and he has just made me TWO 40" x 40" frames with stretched canvas.... I am very excited about that.

Andy Warhol used a 40" x 40" canvas for his famous prints & portraits... I can't say for sure if the pieces will have a Warhol bent to them, but don't be surprised if they do.

Wish me luck, I'll keep you posted.

p.s- I have gone through the kitchen gallery & some of the current paintings will be reworked to portray better images. Be sure to tell everyone that you know- its how the best people build their businesses- word of mouth works. Thanks in advance-

Its been a year since my last post, and I have my show!!!

I am debuting the coffee project at Espresso Love Coffee [ ] in Mukwonago. Please Please Please be sure to stop by & show your support! Tell your friends, your families, your friends' families... you get it, I am sure.

This project has been a year in the making, and if you all know me as well as I think you do, you all know that I am burning the midnight oil to get everything finished & up to my standards. I have worked hard on this collection and have learned a great deal since my show Progression in the fall of last year. The coffee project is one of those things I think that will never be finished. There will always be more to the story, more to enjoy, more to savor. I think this collection will be the first of several to come.

Not everything here is all coffee, all the time. I have added a smattering of tree paintings and have included, in my opinion, the BEST commission I have ever done. Then will get its coffee house review & go to its owner. (Had to do it, Amber. Its that good. Much better than the photos I sent you).
Thank you again, for all of you love, encouragement & support-
