A Few Of My Paintings.



We have been so busy working on the boat,
that I really haven't had the time or energy to do much else,
other than clean house, and a little yard work :)
So, I thought that I would just post a few of my paintings.
I hope you like them :)








Thank you for visiting,
Please leave a comment, so that I know you were here.

Have a wonderful week,
and whatever you are up to this week,
work or fun . . .enjoy each day :)

God bless you all,
Connie 

P.S. Be sure and check out Steve's blog
He will be picking a Give-A-Way winner, 
tonight when he gets off work.

  3. Sweet Connie, I just love all the work you do. You should have a vernisage with all your paintings and drawings! Or/and have them published in a book... I would try to be the first to buy it! I'll be sure to pay Steves blog a visit later on :). Have a lovely day!

  25. Hi Connie,
    You and your husband are amazingly talented. How do you find the time and energy to do all these wonderful things? We seem to be interested in lots of the same things: painting, sewing, gardening, decorating, boating, cooking, etc. Love the little sailboat! I'll be back to visit again.

  29. Morning Connie, GOD has truly BLESSED you with such talent. I'm assuming you have these paintings hung on your wall, because they need to be hanging somewhere......they are beautiful! My favorite is the second one....the light shining on the adobe? house with the cactus. Gorgeous!! I LOVE the colors. Gypsy Rose must be feeling better by the day...getting all spruced up and made over, can't wait to see how beautiful she will be! (I'm sure you and Steve will be THRILLED when shes complete) My computer STILL won't download any current pics I have from my camera....so my blogging will be minimal until it's working again....UGH! (but I'm being patient) Have a wonderful and blessed week~~~Roxie

    1. Hello Roxie, it is a delightful addition to my morning to see your lovely face and read your sweet comment. Things are getting busy around here . . . what with the Gypsy Rose re-do, Spring cleaning and gardening, and today I'm going over to help Steve. He's moving his office, down the hill from where it is now. Just a little move, but it requires everything a big moves requires other than the distances traveled. He's a typical man when it comes to where to put this and that and how it will work best, so I'm off to lend a hand. Construction sights are messy and I will probably have to wear a hard hat when I'm not inside . . . I love hats, but a hard hat will be a new one for this gal, LOL. Have a week filled with joyful moments and thank you so much for stopping by to say, "Hi". Keep smiling, your blogging Sister, Connie :)

  33. You paint and I cross-stitch (which too me is very close to painting). When people come to my house the first thing they notice is my framed cross stitch. Some will make a comment, others just look but you know what they are thinking....., "where did she get that picture from?" Love your paintings.
