The Roots of my life go back as far as my Great Grandfather.  Gardening is a gene that has been passed down in my family from generation to generation.  It serves as a metaphor for life.  Deep strong roots keep you firmly grounded in tradition, passion and happiness!

For years, I have served as a helpful role to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. In 2020,  I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I started writing about my passions, my thoughts, and curious wonderings about our society. I founded A farm girls life! with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and it has been a wild success ever since.

It's An Art Thing!

Updated: Jan 6

Hello my friend's and family! Again it's been a while since I blogged! So sorry about that!

Honestly, my Granddaughter has taken over my life! Since she will be 2 in July, she's getting better at entertaining herself! She's certainly a cutie patootie and she's full of herself.

So, why did I title this, "It's An Art Thing!"? This blog has always been about creativity and how I express that in a farm setting. Usually it's through flowers, gardening, and crafts.

However, painting pictures has also been a part of my life for a long time. I started out painting pictures on the walls in my house, then I moved onto murals in my kids bedrooms, then murals for the kids section at my church, then finally, I started painting landscapes on smaller canvasses.

So, have y'all (that's Ozark twang) noticed the really big prints hanging on the walls in businesses? A lot of them are floral and I'm all about flowers! Anyway, every time I saw one I kept thinking, I could do that!

Right after Christmas I gave myself the gift of acrylic paint, canvasses, and paint brushes! I sqeezed in the time after bedtime for the boys and during nap time for Jaylyn. I started out with abstract Floral paintings! Here is one of my favorites!

Rose Explosion Too

I basically painted a lot of pictures in a short amount of time. We started to run out of room for them!

So, I got on and created a website and a Gallery. Actually, I have 2 galleries, one for photography and one for paintings. Just go to my gallery. You can purchase prints, or the original art. So be sure you check that out!

Since then, I have gotten into more of an impressionistic style. These will be also available on Artspan gallery.
