Sharing My Art

One thing I've been able to do this week while I'm giving my back time to heal is paint! No, not walls (although I have a few that need it!), but artwork.
In the studio

I'm not good at sharing my art. I don't know why...I guess it feels like I'm bragging or something. But seriously, I love to create beautiful, whimsical, or thought-provoking art.

Occasionally, I do a "paint and sip" type paint party too. (Those are great fun. I want to give people a fun experience with art. So many are intimidated and I want them to know they can create!).

I love doing pet portraits from colorful ones to realistic.
"Aubergine, the Queen"
"Buddy" in color



I'm often inspired by my travels.
"Memories of New England"

"Bicycle in an English Garden"

I do paint people but prefer them doing something, not sitting for a photo portrait although I do paint traditional portraits. Children are fun to paint!
"Budding Artist"

"Megan - 2 1/2 years old"

"Snow Angel"

Fantasy - my favorite. I get to use my imagination. :o)
"Midnight's Journey"

Thought-provoking - this one is titled "The Battle For Her Dreams". Do you feel like you've had to fight to hold onto your dreams? How many have you lost or held onto?

Objects with character (old, rusty, you get the idea).

Food and Flowers.
Yummy Dessert - palette knife technique


Greeting cards and signs too.

I sell mostly word of mouth but I'm looking for another avenue this year.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of my artwork. If you'd like to see more, you can click on My Artwork on the side bar or go to

Happy creating!

  1. FINALLY! Seriously, I'm so glad you shared your beautiful art here! You are so talented! Hugs, Cecilia

  2. I love that you shared your art. It's wonderful!!!!

  3. I bet you could sell your colorful pet portraits on Etsy...or any of your art for that matter. The colorful ones are just so unique. Speaking of...I am going to pay you to paint one of Rooster sometime soon. I will get with you before too long about it. :) Love ALL your art! You are so talented...I have always wished I could paint. Have a great Friday and weekend!

    Hugs, Vicky

  4. Hi Cecilia ... you certainly have reason to brag. You paintings are beautiful. "The Battle For Her Dreams" is amazing. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Your paintings are wonderful! Thanks for sharing with us. My favorite is "The battle for her dreams". I could stare at that for a long time, and still not be done. :)

  6. You are so talented Cecilia. I do hope your back heals soon.

    1. Thank you, Laura. It is getting better. Slowly but improving. No more overdoing it for me!

  7. These are wonderful Cecilia, and I'm so glad you finally shared them all. I do have my favs of course...the barn in New England (big surprise), the budding artist (very sweet), battle for her dreams (to answer your question...I've given up on a few, but still holding on to others. Guess that is what most of us do), and the little boy in the car with the tree.

    Glad you're feeling a bit better!


  8. All absolutely wonderful and unique.

  9. And I'm lucky enough to have one of those little trailer signs !!! LOVE IT ! I really think the horse is spectacular.

  10. Oh Cecilia, you have the right to show off what you can do! Please realize that there are very few of us who have this God given talent. I can barely draw a square and that's the boat most of us are in. Definitely show off your art. How about an Etsy shop?

  11. Your paintings are exquisite! are so very talented Cecilia!! should share your paintings more often!...I love "The Battle for Her Dreams" .... I hope your back is better!!! Take care!

    1. Thanks Shirley! My back is doing better. Nothing like a good massage to loosen everything up! I'll try to do better sharing my paintings. :o)

  12. My goodness you are so talented! Please don't ever hide these paintings from us again!
    I am a poppy lover, so I am smitten with yours.
    Take care, dear I truly hope that your back is feeling better.

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright. And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really,  really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option. I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust

How I Stained My Concrete Floors

If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen me working on the studio floor. It was plain concrete and I wanted to seal it and give it color.  I honestly didn't want to worry about messing it up if I dropped paint on it. My idea was to stain the concrete and thankfully, I had a good resource for information. My friend, Cecilia, at My Thrift Store Addiction stained her concrete floor . She assured me it wouldn't be hard so I decided to go for it. I was fortunate I didn't have carpet to remove like Cecilia did. I just needed to clean the floor really good first - you can see from the picture  how dirty it was. So I began by sweeping then vacuuming all the Sheetrock and joint compound dust up. Next I pulled out my wet vac and gave the floor a good scrubbing. I let it dry overnight. The next day, I looked to see what kind of stain I had. I found a quart of Minwax Early American wood stain that was almost full. I figured I'd try it out so I started in the bac

Changing Seasons

Dogwood leaves at the farm Although the leaves won't be changing color just yet here in Texas, the Surprise Lillies are up Reminding us it is September and Fall is on it's way.  It is a time for change. Time to let some things go, time to start new adventures. I'm sure you've all noticed I haven't been blogging much lately. You see, I've been focusing more and more on my art work. "Lion in Full Color" to remind us to live life fearlessly  With the completion of my studio, it is time to become serious about my art business. So I am pouring my energy into creating my art business, exploring all the possibilities  that offers. I am working on a new website - it will have the same address as my old art website:  but it will take awhile for it to show up under the new site - it will be better as I will be able to blog and sell my artwork from there as well.  I'm still figuring things out b
