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

Silly things. :)

How funny but did you know that crochet is "hook" in French? So why do we call it a crochet hook? We are calling it a HOOK HOOK! Silly right? 

Do you call the ATM an ATM Machine? Do you know what ATM stands for? Automated Teller Machine. So we are calling it the Automated Teller Machine Machine. ;) 

Can  you think of anything else?

haha. Dean. If I wrote everything down all that I was thinking about.. I would never get off this computer. I really want to know where some of these ridiculous sayings that we say comes from! I never thought about it till I took French Class. ;) I hope you are doing well :):) How is your art work coming along. Mine is not right now.. pretty obvious. Money is taking over my life right now. :( Trying so hard to make some.. ya know.. not a lot of room for creativeness.
