Here is NH I am selling at Starcrafts on Fogg Road in Epping as well as in a show right now at SAA on Water Street in Exeter NH.
I also was chosen for the Seacoast "Families First" calendar for the month of December with "Winter Blues" and will be in a free publication Titled Fiddleheads where this image I think was chosen for the cover with a story and a couple more images inside.
I am not only Thankful but Grateful as well.
Happy New Year Everyone here's to many sales for all of us on here.

At the very last minute giving it very little thought I entered two images into the pot for fellow garden club members to pick from to do floral displays of.
Like I said I put no thought into the floral displays they would dream up so mine were not chosen this doesn't surprise me in one way as there is no way to describe me :)
I did get a not back that this painting I did is to be on display during the 2 day show though and that works for me as it will be in the town of Atkinson NH and at their Country Club no less lol so many eyes will see my watercolor and you can't discount that when you are new to the game of art and sharing what you are passionate about.
Next year I will paint something with the floral designers in mind once I see their choices from this year and see if they design based on my art next year.
I love being the president of our local garden club and anything I can do to support others who give of themselves to make their towns prettier is the least I can do.
If you are near Atkinson NH Country Club on March 29th or 30th please pop in to see all the beauties they chose and the floral designs they did based on the art and photography.

Have you heard about Doodlewash and Charlie who started this great presence on the web? Watercolorists can signup and make new friends as well as follow other artist's journeys. I am just into my 4th year of painting and paint everyday. I have sold many of my originals and now miss them so doing things a little differently these days. Prints, cards and items here on FAA as well as other storefronts on the web or in brick and mortar places locally.
He asked if he could do a post on my work and so far feedback has been positive though I paint for me alone I do want them to look nice or be fun to look at it as we all truly hate being judged to some degree, though I welcome comments I do not take them to heart, as we all have opinions don't we. So popover check out his work and platform and see if it is a fit for you.
You do not need to like my work as there are some I question about being art as well :) this is a wild world we all share and for the most part it is wonderful if you just look around.
The storms have to let up here with all the work to remove it it cuts into my splashing. Stay safe and have a great day!

From a female trucker to a watercolorist can there be any more opposite professions?
I know for me four years ago as I began this journey that started with a $25, 2 hour introduction into Watercolor class, that I never could have seen this happen. I had been hurt bad and was told I could never drive a rig again so as I fell into sadness from the loss of the only world I had known for 25+ years I dug deep within to find something else to fill the void. I tried beading and photography and did the best I could by adding my spot to this site. I made some sales each year that covered the fee which I settled for and then I began to open up on other sites all the while I blogged about it on my wordpress site under the name NUTSFORTREASURE. Yes it is where I wrote stories about life and added some photos to go with them. I wrote poetry I am telling you I was floundering trying to fill those 18 hours each day I had spent in my rig. Re-inventing oneself at 50 is hard.
Now to the present, year 4 starts with entering so many shows I must add them to the calendar just to have pieces ready in time. Never give up is all I can say. I still miss the road don't get me wrong but the paintings you will see from me come from a place within. I use no photos I just let them flow from me onto the wet paper never knowing where it will end and if it will be worthy of a frame. You see I have finally let go of the wheel and let God guide me on this next trip and OH and what a trip!
