Our website had added 175 photos in the photo gallery! Please check them out and let me know what you think!!
This is a partial view of 15 years of murals and shows! I will be adding more pictures in a couple of days, my fingers are worn out!!
Looking back at all of these pictures, I just have to laugh. One day my mom and I were painting all day, my mom told me "to put more dimension on that section". Only it came out as "put more demensia on that section"! We laughed so hard at that, now we tell all of our customers, that we have demensia in all of our work!! So when I look at our photos, I am remembering things like that!
We enjoy what we do, and our customers are always saying that they can hear us laughing! We have always said, that when it becomes work, we will stop. We are not stopping yet!

This is my first attempt at painting unicorns. I wanted to paint this unicorn to be hopefully included in the upcoming YouTube video made by one of our WHOA team members. She is putting together a whole bunch of paintings of unicorns! I will include it in this blog later on when it comes out!! I can't wait.

This past April we were vendors at the 3-day event called Rolex,at the Lexington Horse Park, Lexington, KY. We spoke with so many people for those 4 days! One customer loved our paintings, but wanted her horse on something. We spoke for a bit and finally agreed that if she just sent the table top we could paint on it and ship it back with reasonable shipping fees all around. She did send us 2 table tops. She wanted four terriers on one and on the other she wanted her horse and parent's bearded collie. She sent lots of photos for us to pick and choose which was great!
I was painting the horse and dog. I painted her horse bending over the closed dutch door and the bearded collie touching noses with her mare. The top measured 28" diameter. I ended up with 10 coats of polyurethene finish for protection!
We wish to thank everyone who has viewed, commented and followed our blog for this year. We got started late in the year with this blog, but have enjoyed all of it so far!
New Year's Day finds us taking down the Christmas decorations inside of the house. We used to have a tradition of taking it down on New Year's Eve. We had too much to do and couldn't get it done in time!
We have all made our resolutions for the up coming year. Hopefully, we will be able to keep them!!
One of my resolutions is to paint more things for myself. I never have any of my artwork around, it is always sold or given away as gifts!
On Boxing Day (day after Christmas) we all go over to my mom's house for GUMBO! It is the highlight for my oldest son! It is a soup full of crab, shrimp and veggies. The photo with the sunflower tablecloth is my mom's dining room.
As a joke present we gave my older kids some pullback car toys. You pull them back and then they race forward. One of my german shepherds was fascinated by the toy.
