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

Not a lot is going on yet this morning. I am going to work on some mini paintings. I need to get a little practice before I touch my large painting.   I am still kinda sore from the whole "getting slim" thing that I am working on. 

I missed one of my art classes that I teach yesterday because the Email system is no good sometimes! Makes me so frustrated because I want to perform at high levels! When I do not I feel stressed out. I know that is natural. I think what frustrates me the most is that I work for someone else. Every day I am responsible for so many other people *my children* and so for me to feel that I am responsible for someone else now I get upset when I let that person down and of course a little angry because guilt and anger are best friends.  To think of it.. I do not think there has ever been a time that I have not just been responsible for me and me alone. As a child I felt that I was always responsible for my mother. Then at sixteen I had my first child and got married. So I get a little overwhelmed I think sometimes. Anyways.. I will get over it.  Just me venting today. I will clean the living room and feel a lot better! :) yay. Then paint! i think I will paint an apple. I have a couple of them laying around. 

So - so far my day started out bad - but I have big plan on making it better because LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT! And I choose to make it a good day regardless! 

I was going to add a picture too but every time I try it makes my computer lock up. So I am going to skip that for now! :) Hope you all have a wonderful day.
