Framing Artwork

Getting ready to frame landscape paintings for the Gallery. These two pieces of artwork are each 4×4″ inch miniatures.

Do you prefer buying or selling artwork that is framed or unframed? I sell a little of both.


Art: A Natural Outcome

We will be happy if we can get around to the idea that art is not an outside and extra thing,that it is a natural outcome of a state of being; that the state of being is an important thing.. – Henri

Summer isn’t supposed to last forever…


“Cold front is approaching”, is the prettiest phrase I’ve heard in months. Summer isn’t meant to last forever dear. 

I’m setting the stage in my studio for some instant inspiration , a pathway to winters door and some nature inspired artwork. I think some can relate to this type of experience. ☺️


Autumn danced in like a fairy queen touching her wand ever so lightly over the farm,changing everything,creeping along in a graceful,quiet,assured way,sweeping the pathways clean that lead to winters door.

Framing the Charolais

A few years ago I worked mainly commissions for cattle breed owners. Besides Charolais there were Angus, Simmental, Limousin and Belted Galloway. I enjoyed the custom work and interaction with the breed owners. They were a great bunch. I made several pieces for FFA and 4H shows. I often think about doing it again and I may do just that if I can get around to setting up the space for it.

In the meantime I’ve been framing up the pieces I have in my shop to make it easier for buyers to have a ready to hang piece of art. I know if I were purchasing I would definitely be looking for something  ready to hang and enjoy right away.

I have to have my art framed and presentable for any show I do or gallery space I have. So I am already looking through the best products for the best price that looks most flattering for the art and will make it viewing ready. Id like to pay that forward as it is very  t i m e  consuming and not the most fun thing to do when you would rather be enjoying the creating or viewing process instead. But the frameless print and original counterparts are always available also for anyone who would like the tackle the presentation on their own.

Here is what I have for today: Find the details and purchase price here


Thanks for reading my update. I always enjoy the feedback. =)


Breaking Records on the Homefront

We had a little snow thankfully on Sunday which put out most of the ghastly historically record breaking wild fire we had here in Kansas. Between Okla. and Kansas 400,000 acres were burned. It didn’t take long to melt and the temps were back up in the 70’s the next day.


My son and I broke our walking record this week as we made it to the 13 mile mark which is roughly 4 hours on the trail. Good times.


Pictured also is my horse Redee. She was definitely feeling the crazy weather an did not care for the wildfire smoke that nearly blotted out the sun.
