________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

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

Getting back to basics.


I went to the store this morning and bought some new tools (and two new sets of wind chimes). Some of the tools I have never used before. I am trying to "ugrade" my drawings. I have worked a lot with charcoal but I have never worked with chalk. So I decided that I would do this one in chalk and charcoal and see how well they worked together. I have been practicing with the chalk. I like it! It works well. I have not made this silly ball for over.... uh eight years. So I thought I would make this one out of chalk to see how it looks.. Turned out decent enough. A little sloppy but decent enough. I get the idea. I think I am ready to start putting in the details. I have drawn the lines and they look nice. :)
