I’m from Pittsburgh and live in Denver, so I bleed football. OK this year’s playoff games didn’t leave me too thrilled but I am still excited to watch the SUPER BOWL.
I am going to watch from home, thank you – the $2,800 ticket price is a little beyond my budget, unless I sell another painting (just kidding.) $2,800 just to watch a game??? What happened to team sports for the masses? Continue reading
Warm Friend on a Cold Day is available as duvet cover, pillow, prints and more on Fine Art America.
My only grandchild lives 1500 miles away. He is six years old. My husband and I went to visit him last month – this is how it went:
ME: May I speak to Andre?
PERSON ON THE OTHER END: Is he expecting your call?
PERSON ON THE OTHER END: Whom shall I say is calling?
ME: Grandma. Continue reading
Black Love is Black Power
Politics aside, I’d like to thank President and Mrs. Obama for bringing 8 years of class, elegance, love, grace and warmth to the White House.
Wishing the Obama family much success in their future endeavors. You will be missed.
This original print is also available as a shower curtain, pillow, phone case, coffee mug and much more.

I want to retire but I can’t do the math. I have no idea how long I expect to live, so how could I possibly know whether or not I have enough money to last me until I die?
Back in the day, retirement was simple — 65, gold watch, have a nice life with a pension. You know, a monthly income that lasted until death – sorta like old school marriage.
If you got sick or senile (old school for Alzheimer’s) you lived with one of your children in their assisted living facility. (Although the thought of living with my children is not one that I cherish)

I got back from my second honeymoon last month.
We took a wonderful cruise to Nassau and Cozumel. As the ship set sail, the cruise director started an old school dance party complete with the Hustle, Macarena, and the Electric Slide.
People from all backgrounds joined in, laughing, dancing and having a great time. Not judging, not hating, just dancing.
For five glorious days, I got to see what the world could be like, and it was great. Nothing but love and sunshine.
Maybe instead of elections, we should have one big Soul Train line. (It’s a thought.)
Kwanzaa yenu iwe nahari. This means, “may your Kwanzaa be a happy one.”
The Gift is available as prints or greeting cards at Fine Art America.
This holiday was started in 1968 by Maulana Ron Karenga after the Watts riots and is celebrated by millions of people of African decent in the US and the Caribbean. Continue reading
Every year we here it – Peace on Earth, etc.
Most of the time we can pull it off between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but then by January 2nd, something happens and we go right back to our bitter, angry miserable ways. I think after this year’s presidential election, things are probably worse.
I have all of the “stuff” I need and lots of “stuff” that I don’t need. The thing I want the most for Christmas this year is genuine kindness, understanding and LOVE. Not just for the holiday season, but as a way we act toward one another.
Wouldn’t this be a grand world if love became our habit? Maybe we have gotten all of the hate out of our systems – maybe this will be the year.
May everyone have a great holiday!!!!
This painting Christmas Eve is not for sale.
Remember the Radio Flyer? It was a wooden sled with metal runners. Try to use one of those these days and it will sink into the mud.
Winter Watch available on Fine Art America. It looks great as a shower curtain!!!
This is my second honeymoon. As you are reading this, my husband and I are enjoying a 5 night cruise to Nassau and Cozumel. Will return with lots of new things to paint.
This painting is a memory of my last trip to Nassau. Prints, beach towels and shower curtains are available on my Fine Art America site.
I must admit, old school is not always the best. Take banking, for instance. I started a new job not to long ago and it took one pay cycle to get my direct deposit in place— so they paid me with A PAPER CHECK!!!
What was I supposed to do with that? Oh – yes. I remember now- take it to the BANK. Continue reading
