What Keeps Me Going...

My son Ryan with his footall team.
My youngest son Austin(AV) with his team.

I sometimes feel like I come on this blog and complain about all the computer issues I have, but OMG I have them. I have had two viruses within the last two weeks, in which I've been late meeting deadlines. I'm afraid to even mention to clients just because I don't want them to think I'm a flaky artist, and I'm not. I usually get comments on how fast i turn things around. But let me tell you when you live in Texas and it rains for SEVEN days straight, and I mean flooding rain, and your computer is are bound to have issues. I haven't been able to load anything on either of my sites and not able to load pictures period. Then yesterday...I finally got a picture through. I have had 3 weeks of feeling so frustrated over the issue but things are starting to turn around. By week 2 I actually just decided to myself there was basically nothing I could do and to just focus on my kids and painting. So you'll see a lot of new things popping up in the ETSY shop this week. Have a great day! Marnie V.

A Whole Lot of.......

I've been doing a whole lot of.....

football practice(EVERY NIGHT) :)
horrible car problems...yuck...but getting better
running 3 miles a day for stress relief

I think that pretty much wraps up all that's in my life right now.

The photo above is one of the first paintings I created when we moved to Texas. I've always loved the simplicity and design of it...the title...
" My Favorite Train."
My inspiration....My son Jacob, who is now 13, has a passion for trains. I honestly think he always will. Of course, now he has a passion for cheerleaders, yeah...I won't be painting those.

Have a great day! Marnie V.
