BLOG HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I have tried and tried to figure out how to post photo's with text under them. In a row, as if you were showing a photo and explaining what is happening in that photo. Another way to put it is, I want to upload several photo's with text under each photo to explain my process for creating photo-collage paintings. Sounds so simple.
Please reply in the comments section or email me:

I'll love ya forever!


This is a quick post to let you know the shop of the day from NEATOSTUFF'S "GREAT MARKETING EXCHANGE" is (drumroll) They have craft supplies, beads, feathers and more in their etsy shop. Check it out!
(now I'm gonna try to make a link!)

Hi All, Quick note because I must get ready for work at SUPER SHOES!!! I've been sickly with a cold for several days and could care less about blogging. I've shirked my duties with this marketing exchange. Actually I thought I was supposed to post this info here on my blog but I found out it's also supposed to go on my etsy site. Bad TUTU. So here it is They have beautiful high-end jewelry. Check it out!
See ya later.

This Thursday evening, Oct. 13, 08, will be the preview event for the STOCKED MARKET. An annual event/fund raiser for the Junior Women's League of the Roanoke Valley. It is being held at the Roanoke Civic Center for the first time. Past years have been at the Salem Civic Center. I will be there for the opening night with some of the staff from ART ON A MISSION. They have had a booth for a couple of years at this event. ART ON A MISSION offers much more than art. They have antiques, vintage linens, vintage jewelry and more, in addition to a lot of local artists works in 2D, 3D, jewelry, wood creations, photography, candles, handbags, and more. It's a great store and an affordable way to give unique, creative gifts to everyone! Plus you will help support the efforts of the RESCUE MISSION and a lot of artists!!!!! Now back to the STOCKED MARKET, I'm not real sure what the MISSION will have on hand for sale, but I will have miniature paintings and a handout with a coupon inside to get a 10% on Sue Furrow art work through their store at Tanglewood Mall (next to Penney's) Mini-paintings are an afforable and unique gift for everyone. Your childs teacher would probably love a mini painting to put in her window instead of a box of candy or cookies! Give UNIQUE a try this year!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry this a bit long. The images above is a sample of the mini's for sale.

Well, howdy all. I was way to tired last night to tell you how the new art show went. It was held on Kirk Ave. in downtown Roanoke, yesterday. The opening of the new, huge, gorgeous TAUBMAN ART MUSEUM was held yesterday too. Everyone was hoping a lot of people would find their way over to this art show when they left the museum. It didn't happen. Some came over, but----you know the rest. It was really windy and pretty chilly! You know how it gets between big buildings and the funnel effect with the wind. I enjoyed visiting with artists I had not seen for some time. Next year will be better and I think they want to hold it a little earlier, maybe in October. And "they" are, the staff at SIGNATURE 9 GALLERY. They were so hospitable and good natured. They let the artists use their facilities and served hot cider and a bunch of homemade goodies. Thank you very much ladies!
Now let me mention some shops on ETSY. I was supposed to post their url yesterday, BUT I was just to tired (the bad thing about one day shows). So let me try to post their links now.



Appears I may have done it correctly. Now I'll go check it out!

Here is a cool, quiet spot to read or nap. I painted pretty fast for me (I'm probably the slowest person to ever hold a brush). I was at my sister's place and I had to finish before her children came home from school. They never stop talking or asking questions and I'm so easily distracted, this piece would never have been finished. So if you have questions or comments, please feel free to get in touch. If you CLICK HERE you will go to Ebay to bid. Thanks for stopping in.


WHOOP WHOOP THE OBAMA WON!!!!!!!!!! Now let's see some change-some progress-some hope. I've been commenting to various people that I thought everyone would relax and get back to business as usual, as soon as the election was over. I hope I'm right. My business has been really slowwwww. I've only had two sales in the last week. Both sales came from the LG Hosp. Gallery - not even from the web (Etsy) where there are supposedly thousands of viewers every day! So let's get this economy up and running again. We artist's are starving! LOL (I found out that means laugh out loud) So what's new-artists have always starved.
Anyway, the big shopping season is here! You may know that I'm not much of a blogger, I'd much rather be painting or swinging my baby or taking photos of beautiful yellow trees, but I'm seriously gonna make an effort to post on my blog at least 3/4 times a week. I'm not sure why, some artist like William Hawkins, don't blog every day! He is a real story teller too. You should subscribe to his blog if you enjoy far-fetched story telling. He has a lot of paintings in his ebay store so maybe thats why he feels no need to blog every day.

So now I'm going to get a snack and be back later with a new painting!
Have a great evening and a busy year-end!
