H'Art of the West™, sterling silver heart ring

As with the others, this ring is handcrafted from sterling silver and no two are exactly alike. Hurry to order in time for Christmas delivery! Ring is $15 and includes free shipping!

Getting caught up.....

It has been a while since I added to my blog. I will try to update as much as I can.

I was able to go to Cowboy Christmas in Las Vegas to see The Horse Gift mural mosaic in person in early December. It is such a huge painting! You just cannot appreciate it until you see it in person. Outstanding! I got to meet Phil and Paul, fellow artists and producers of the mural. Such nice, sweet guys. If this mural is in your area, please make an effort to see it. My panel is #188. :)

Last year was one helluva ride for me, produced lots of paintings, sold many of them, sold commissions, did the Horse mural, participated in Art festivals, was invited to display my works at Central Park Art locally and at Calico Ghost Town Art Gallery, .....just had so much fun!

This year, however, is a basic downer. My son has decided to move to OK because of the recession, he lost his construction job and in his town there is no work, so he is selling his house and moving. Instead of a 'quick' 5 hour drive, it will be 19 hours from here. Not a weekend endeavor anymore. Because of my cat rescue and our horse and mule, we cannot leave for more than a weekend so I fear we will not see each other and my grandson for a very long time. While trying to better my art by taking classes, I caught the instructor's cold and during it I fractured 2 ribs from coughing. Very painful still, so my mobility is limited. I also lost out on 2 art festivals I really wanted to attend. THEN, my computer took a dive and it took over 6 weeks to get another! My gosh, 6 weeks without being to socialize with my online friends and contacts was a hard thing to take!

However, now my ribs are easing up, I have the new computer, sent 5 new paintings to Calico, so hopefully all the bad things are now behind me. Whew!

I hope you are well and things are great with you.
