"Boys in the Country"

We may not live in the country but I'm so thankful that we can drive 20 minutes and we're there. This is where our daughter rides and the boys love to go and run around out there. It's so nice to get to experience a slower pace of life. I am forced to sit and be still...well maybe chase one particular 2 year old around. :) I love the scenery and I force myself to stop and look around at the 'common' details that I so often pass by. Clovers, fences, daffodils, slow moving clouds, etc. At least for now I can escape to a different pace of life for an hour a week....until next time. :)

"In Bloom"

There are so many gorgeous flowering bushes and trees in bloom right now...we have a GORGEOUS Dogwood tree out back that fills one corner of our yard. I love looking out and seeing all the colors that surround our house. I am thankful for an early spring. Here are some spring inspired pieces that I recently did. Enjoy!

"Horsing Around!"

Our oldest child, and only girl, rides horses. She loves it and so do I! As soon as I can I'm planning on joining her at her lessons! The stables provide TONS of inspiration for me. The horses, pasture, hay, I could go on and on....
Here are some pics and the piece I recently did for our daughter titled "Olivia and Dixie". See you soon!

Every Day!

THIS has become an everyday occurance lately! My 4 year old begs me to make cookies with him....EVERY DAY! So, like any good mom I do it...and then I eat half the batter. Really fun but not so good for the baby-weight loss plan :)

Fresh Air!

I traveled to Madison this week with ALL 4 kids BY MYSELF to see my parents. It's a super well-done, cute town and we love going. There is a lot of land behind my parents' house, along with a barn. If you're up early enough, which I never am, you can see deer come up to their property line. It's cool. This isn't the best picture (it was taken with my phone) but this is the view behind their house. I love landscapes and I love the simplicity of fields. Here's the barn...what little you can see of it. :)
See y'all soon!

Hello World!

I have started this blog as an attempt to show my life and inspirations for my art. Life with a husband and 4 kids is anything but boring. My world is a little insane and full of colorful experiences.....tune in and get a glimpse of my life as it is on a daily basis. Blessings are everywhere and you don't have to look too far to find them!
