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

Working Slowly.

Well she is not exactly where I want her right now. The right eye still needs some work. Its really hard to figure out where the lines are because the original photo is so messed up. I actually had to lighten it and sharpen it to try to get the lines to pop out more.. So this is where I am right now. I used to expect them to look exactly like the original... But my biggest lesson in my YR class is that you will never draw the picture exactly like mine and I will never draw the picture exactly like yours... Kinda helps take the anxiety out of it all. Does not work every time however.
