Ok, friends. I have to clear out my pile of portraits in my studio. If I painted you during the 2023 Kellie Snider's 100 Faces Portrait Project, are you by any chance still interested in owning your beautiful face for posterity? If you don't want to display you on your own walls, your mom does! Or your kid does! Christmas is closer than you think!

I'm in a negotiating frame of mind, so if you're interested in bartering or naming your own price, please let me know!

If you'd like a direct link, reply, and I'll send it. Otherwise scroll thru here.

It was a crisp morning in 2010, the sleepy stillness of the hour adding to the uneasy anticipation that brewed quietly within us. My husband and I were in Ecuador, awaiting the final leg of our journey home. By 5:30 a.m., we were at the airport, our energy only bolstered by the imminent return to familiar grounds. Little did we know, our adventure was far from over....

It was a crisp morning in 2010, the sleepy stillness of the hour adding to the uneasy anticipation that brewed quietly within us. My husband and I were in Ecuador, awaiting the final leg of our journey home. By 5:30 a.m., we were at the airport, our energy only bolstered by the imminent return to familiar grounds. Little did we know, our adventure was far from over.

After checking in, we found seats near our gate, the quiet murmur of fellow travelers creating a blanket of tentative serenity. It was then that a firm voice cut through the air, calling my name. I looked up to see a stern-looking security officer gesturing for me to come to the desk. I asked if my husband, who was dozing beside me, should accompany me. The officer shook his head. No.

With a growing knot of apprehension in my stomach, I followed him. Our path meandered through a labyrinth of locked doors and winding corridors, only heightening my sense of isolation. I wasn’t alone, though. Two other women were part of this unexpected procession.

One of the women was soon diverted through another doorway, vanishing from sight. Anxiety wrestled with my thoughts. The remaining woman spoke Spanish, while I only knew English. We exchanged worried glances, our strained attempts at communication touching the edges of understanding. Our journey spiraled downwards, literally, leading us beneath the airport itself.

The sight that greeted us there was surreal. Before us stood a large, imposing metal table, our luggage already arrayed on its surface. Nearby, a scent detection dog sifted through the luggage with practiced diligence. The first officer silently departed, leaving us face-to-face with another officer, his machine gun slung menacingly across his chest.

He began sifting through our belongings. The Spanish-speaking woman, her suitcase neatly packed, finished first and was escorted away. My suitcase was another story—crammed with dirty clothes and mementos. An awkward pause filled the air as the officer held up the incense I had bought in Cuenca the day before, his eyes narrowing in scrutiny.

After what felt like an eternity, the initial officer returned, leading us back through the same maze of locked doors. Relief washed over me as I spotted my husband. Yet, his face was a mask of panic. He had been kept in the dark, frantic in his attempts to contact a lawyer we had met earlier. The experience left a lingering chill—a reminder that even in the midst of return, the unexpected can always beckon you into the unknown.

Work in progress

Getting close to finishing this wedding portrait of my niece and her Christopher. Tomorrow I'm going to start a painting about a time I could have died. I think I'll do a series. Because, whew, have I had a life. You should follow me so you can find out how that went down.

Getting close to finishing this wedding portrait of my niece and her Christopher.

Tomorrow I'm going to start a painting about a time I could have died. I think I'll do a series. Because, whew, have I had a life.

I was listening to This American Life and someone told a story about a situation where they were in serious danger on a boat and could have died. I thought, "Wow, I'm glad I've never been in a situation where I could have died" and I instantly started thinking of times when I was in situations where I actually and literally could have died....

I was listening to This American Life and someone told a story about a situation where they were in serious danger on a boat and could have died. I thought, "Wow, I'm glad I've never been in a situation where I could have died" and I instantly started thinking of times when I was in situations where I actually and literally could have died.

I should tell you guys about some of them. Are you interested in learning about the times when I literally could have died but didnt? I'm not telling you about the times I actually died.

That's my tricky way to get you to like, comment, and share, and I do actually have such stories that I would tell you if you wanted me to.

Today I discovered a cool familial coincidence. Two of my nieces recently got married. Niece 1, Dani Cooper, is on my husband's side, and Niece 2, Chelsea Mitchell, is my sister's daughter. ( Kerrie Sisson Hutchinson ) They are both in their 30s and each has a child from a previous relationship.

Okay, so i know that was already exciting, but they both married guys named Christopher. Christopher Cooper & Christopher Mitchell. And both of them prefer to be called Christopher rather than Chris.

As if that isn't enough mind blowing for one post, both Christopher's are 6'-6" tall. Both of the nieces are on the short side so I started wondering how tall the guys were while looking at their wedding photos. Little women with towering men.

Well, I'm pretty sure that was caused by some sort of zodiac Feng shui smoke and mirrors magic, but I think it's cool anyway.

So here is the almost finished portrait of Chelsea and Christopher, and the just started portrait of Dani and Christopher.



Getting close to the finishing line, but as always need to live with it a while before I let it go.

06/21/2024

I really enjoy painting weddings, after the stress of the big event dies down and everyone is feeling a little tired and happy. They had some great backlighting going on for this. More work to come, so please comment and follow to tune in for the rest. Congratulations, and best wishes, Chelsea and Chris Mitchell.

We got a new dishwasher today. Not how I like to spend money, but Mr. Husband said the installers loved my artwork, so I guess it was worth the several hundred dollars we spent!

Two questions for you.

1) Where do you prefer to get information about products to buy, particularly things you want, not things that are basic needs. E.g. you need a home, food, clothing, etc. but you want a certain kind of decor, and like a certain kind of activity. So, the difference between a shirt that covers your body, and a shirt that you absolutely love.

2) Advertising affects all of us in the modern world. What kind of ads do you find yourself responding to? Like, I've bought Cider Pants and Wonderskin lip stains because I kept seeing them on TikTok ads. They were sold super cheap initially, and I tried, and liked them. So, I guess, as irritating as they can be, I guess I'm influenced by influencers. How about you?

So, I decided to make some 4th of July earrings for my shop and there was another start of some earrings in the heat press. I honestly did not see what is obvious to me now when I made them.
