What’s it going to take?

Do you have something that is so near and dear to you that no matter what the circumstances you are not going to get rid of it? I do, but it is definitely NOT my minivan. So why keep fixing it? What I sometimes refer to as my “Paint-Mobile” is a 2003 Ford Windstar Minivan.…

A Touch of Dixie

I promise I won’t make it a habit here, talking art I mean. Last week was about my “limited pallet” and this week, well yes. I’m going to talk art… sort of, but what else do I know? I’ve seen many a blog talking of their travels, or what they did that day. Usually an…
