I’ve been thinking of the ocean and the beach lately. I can’t believe that we’re already halfway through July! Time is flying by. So much so that I didn’t even realize that my Blog’s 5th Anniversary came and went on June 19. Five years is a big deal for me, so I am kind of bummed that I missed it. No need to wallow… onward!

So much has happened in the last 5 years. My work has been sent to at least 32 US States (they really love me in Texas and Nebraska!), and several international locations – France, Scotland, England, Australia, Canada, Ireland.

I’ve made many friends in fellow artists and art collectors alike.
I’ve had 2 babies, and my first baby isn’t much of a baby anymore. Even with all the day-to-day busyness, art has been more present than it has ever been in my entire life. I am so grateful for that.

Last year I did a free painting give-away to celebrate, and I would like to do the same this year. So, for the next week or so (until July 19th) anyone interested in being entered into the drawing, please leave a comment on my blog letting me know. You can leave it on this post, or any post you’d like. There are lots, so check out the archives.

Thank you all for sticking with me. I appreciate the encouraging comments and support.

  1. Takeyce, congratulations on five years of pursuing your passion and being recognized for your gifts, while also living a very full life in other spheres. May blessings continue to abound.

  2. Hi Takeyce! Congrats on five years of blogs! That is quite a feat indeed. I have always enjoyed your artwork, and also getting to know you over the years. I’m so sorry to have missed Art in the Park, and please let me know when your next showing is. I would greatly like to be entered in the drawing, but not for myself but for my mom’s new senior apt. It needs something to spruce it up and one of your wonderful paintings would be perfect! I hope to see you soon! Take care and much love to you and your beautiful family! Connie

  4. Hi Takeyce,
    It is a real pleasure to experience your art and watch how it has grown and changed over the years. I couldn’t be prouder of you, dear friend. I remember when you were just embarking on this journey….how time flies. You are such an inspiration to me, for your creative spirit, following your dreams and developing your art. And those babies!!!!! Wow!!! Your family is so special and I feel so lucky to call you my friend. Congratulations on five years. That is a very big deal! Let’s get together soon! Hugs, Nancy

  5. Takeyce –

    I feel like I haven’t seen you in forever! I hope you and the family are doing well. I will have to pop up to the third floor to say hi sometime.
