Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

One of the guards there checked my progress every once in awhile and I asked him what it was like, being there with such a treasure every day. "Is it like a miracle?" I wondered.
He explained that it is difficult to enjoy being there because he has to constantly watch the crowd. But he did offer that his favorite place to look at the sculpture was where he could see the face, about ninety degrees to the right, from my position in the gallery.
One of the other guards told me she felt it was a privilege to be there with the art every day.
