happy days

This post marks my 100th post on BLOGGER. 

Even though the weather hasn't really begun to cool off yet, these are happy days for me. At the moment, my two oldest children are at school, and my two youngest are napping simultaneously. I am sipping chocolate Silk and eating goldfish crackers with a healthy (meaning generous, not heart-smart) side of pepper-jack cheese. Last fall, I made the decision to go back to school beginning in fall 2010. I am now pursuing my bachelor's of fine arts degree at Louisiana Tech University. I am a transfer student having aquired already an assoicaite degree in illustration. My first class here is beginning painting with Peter Jones. This painting is after day two, we will finish it during the next class. It is a still life (obviously) using a limited pallet. I am having a lot of fun with it.

I was just picked as the featured artist showing at the Holiday Arts Tour!!! (Click the link to see more.) My work will be in Ruston, LA at RUMO'S Barber Shop during the Arts Tour and I plan to have 31 new pieces ready for sale then. Here is one for a sneak preview:

My husband and I are going on a little get-a-way to New Orleans Friday night, and I am going to spend some time in the New Orleans Museum of Art. Finally, A trip to a museum! It has been far too long.

Keep tuning in for more sneak peaks.


  1. Wow, Julie that's awesome about the show! Congratulations, and best wishes with tat! How fun that you get to go to the Museum in New Orleans. And I didn't know you were going back to school. Fabulous! Your painting is looking so great!

  2. Jules, this is wonderful...I'm so happy you are making your dreams come true!

  3. Congratulations on the show - that's so awesome. I'm so proud of you for going back to school! And that's so nice about the children ordeal, you're so lucky! Charlotte is not a sleeper and I babysit another non-sleeper. It'll even out, I'm sure, one day. Congratulations, sounds like everything is going really well for you. Enjoy the museum and I love your work!

  4. What about those of us who can't make it. How do we purchase pieces?

  5. That's so awesome - on both counts: school AND the art gallery!

  6. Congratulations on the 100 mark and the upcoming show! I really enjoyed my visit to your site!
