I am a mother, a grandmother and a contemporary realist painter currently living in Montana. I was encouraged to be an artist when I was younger due to some sad events in my life. Through this experience I started to learn and understand how much of an impact being an artist and the art world in general could have on a person if given a chance. Later, I wanted to be a seascape painter and went to school where I received my Associates in Fine Art/Humanities (2007) and have been able to continue my artistic education through books, the internet and personal experiences. Today I do not just paint the ocean but I paint anything that inspires me. Through my artwork, I want to encourage happy thoughts, happy memories and positive perspectives in order to stimulate a happy heart within my viewer whether it be from a nature scene to something as simple as a favorite coffee cup. - Frankie Stockman 2021

Three Cheers!

I just wanted to send out three cheers for all of my followers. I love it that you are here sharing all this "stuff" with me. Thanks! I am not painting today. Instead I am being social (cyberly.. not like I am never on the computer giggle) and cleaning my house. I cleaned my art room for the first time today. With the dog, the two cats and my three year old coming in here with me all the time - I was running out of room. So its all clean now and ready for me tomorrow. I have had a good day today and I have crossed off some stress factors from my "stress factor" list. Anyone else have one of those? Sometimes the dumbest little things add up and add up... and it can get to the point where making a phone call or just going to the store can become the chore of a lifetime. And if those little chores can feel so huge - imagine how the bigger chores feel. So I made a list. I waited till I went to bed.. then whatever I thought of - I added. :) I am getting down to nothing left on the list!
