Country Cable Guy

The Country Cable Guy 
10x12 Oil on linen panel
sold


 We live in the country and one day last fall I was driving down our country road and this cowboy fellow was out working on the cable lines...The sun was just right and I fortunately had my camera with me...

A bit later, our phone service went out. I called the phone company and then as I was leaving my husband and I saw this gentleman again...out working on our line.  I said to my husband "that's my country cable guy!"  He stopped to talk to them and invited him up to the house to see the painting...and the rest is history.  Now they own this small painting and they love it!  Yeah!

Friends~Hello Again
If you are still out there...wow...thank you.  My last post was November of 2015.  I have been painting but I have had a lot of other things in my life as well.  I hope those of you that are still out there and are still subscribed to my blog will take a look once again and let me know too.  I plan on posting again at the urging of my daughter who is working my social media for me.  Thank you Jill.  I had forgotten how much I enjoyed writing.  

So much has been going on.  My stepmother recently passed-I was her guardian.  Not enough time when life gets in the way sometimes.  I miss her but I am grateful I will be able to get back into the swing of my everyday life.  For those of you who have been caretakers, you will understand.

In the coming weeks, I'll be posting new work so I hope that you will let me know what you like-or don't.  Also will be posted are paintings in stages and perhaps even some videos.  I'll be posting on other artists works as well and insights that I have had over the years about materials, color and things learned from others that I hope will be helpful and useful to you.  I hope you will join me!  

Take care!
