ARTIST'S STATEMENT

See me in this picture at four with my family? Big impact on this artist who still paints like a little girl seventy years later AT A CHILDS-EYE-VIEW, IN FULL SUN (with no dark shadows). So, I continue to love massive flower gardens even if I have none...memories can last forever.

I moved to BELEN, New Mexico the end of December 2019 because Raton's high elevation was too difficult for me (before that, Colorado for 73 years). I love it here... a tad warmer in winter, but still cold. (add sad emoji) As a retired pro house painter, I've spent weeks on texturing my kitchen walls and making curtains and although I said I've retired from housepainting, ha, ha, ha, I have five more rooms to paint. But nights are studio painting time.....

I'm still very reclusive and not doing any social medias . . . a gallery will do that for me. I am interested in being in only one honest gallery (yes, exclusivity).

PS I can not afford to pay those stupid ONLINE REPUTATION PROTECTOR services, so if you read online that I have a nasty criminal record, it's a lie.

POLITICS AND MUSIC

I'm a proud liberal news junkie (PBS, NPR, HUFFPOST, lot's of MSNBC). I believe in AMERICANS UNITED for the SEPARATION of CHURCH and STATE (www.au.org) and enjoy their online newsletters + their publication Church & State + I subscribe to UNION of CONCERNED SCIENTISTS (ucs@ucsusa.org) and support NCSC - NATIONAL CENTER for SCIENCE EDUCATION (www.ncse.com) because of the threats to science education/evolution/climate change AND CENTER FOR INQUIRY (centerforinquiry.net), AND I subscribe to SKEPTICAL INQUIRER magazine (skepticalinquirer.org.....endorsed by both Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye). Since I support science, reason and secular values, I believe in their campaign for vaccinations of children (www.safeandsecular.org) and I donate to PLANNED PARENTHOOD and POPULATION CONNECTION (www.popconnect.org), when I can. I just started subscribing to CNN FAREED'S GLOBAL BRIEFING and he writes easy-to-read SUCCINCT paragraphs of each days news, Monday - Friday.

Bernie or Joe have my vote and I hope one of them chooses SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN as Vice President. . . . .

ALSO! Help MOTHER JONES magazine crowdfund their CORRUPTION PROJECT by chipping in a few bucks to motherjones.com/donate...Or, mail $20.00 for one year of Mother Jones at PO Box 8539, BIG SANDY, TX 75755-9629 to support them & read award-winning articles! (David Corn is Bureau Chief & on TV often). I also subscribe to TIME magazine year after year.

I listen to Hearts of Space music (hos.com) because it can take me anywhere in the world with music depending on my mood.... just love it. . . . can't paint without it (it's that good). I discovered Hearts of Space music in 1983 and have been 'blown away' with their most awesome musical programs ever since. They just updated their fantastic website and it's amazing.

thanks for visiting my website....
