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

Choose your own adventure

Choose your own adventure

Today is mothers day! YaY for moms! What a great day to celebrate our mothers. Today I woke up and decided that I was going to make some breakfast. Then I thought - Wait. I am the mom. Today is my day! So why can't the kids do it? At that moment my mood changed. I felt unhappy.I did not want to be unhappy so I decided to "choose my own adventure". I was not going to get upset today. So I made the breakfast just like I would any day and thought about how much I love them. This is why its my day. Because I do things like this! I decided to continue doing it. We had pancakes with dark chocolate chips and some heath candy pieces, bacon and eggs. It was really good. My kids loved it. The younger ones had it all over the sides of their faces and they were happy and laughing. That is why I am a mother! That is why this is my day today! I am happy. Happy to be a mother! Even if I still have to make breakfast and clean my house today.

BE HAPPY MOMS! You are the greatest. I know you may feel unappreciated a lot of the time. I know I do! I can relate. But just remember they do listen to you even when you do not think they do. They love you even when you do not think they do. :)  I dedicated this song to all of us ROCKSTAR MOMS! And yes.. that means you! Katey Perry - FIREWORK
