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

The Stylish Blogger Award

I received this award from a very lovely woman by the name of Debbie. She is a fellow artist who loves to blog about her love for God and share her beautiful art work. <a href="http://debsheadstick.blogspot.com/">Debs Head Stick</a> you can follow this link and see what she is up to.    Debbie is an inspiration to me and I like reading her blogs because like some of the other blogs I read, she has forced me acknowledge things about myself that I really did not want to. But when I did - I felt so much better. Thank you Debbie!   Glad we found one another.                                          
I am now going to tell you a little about myself before I pass this on to four of my fellow bloggers. 

Let me see. What can I share with you that you might find interesting....         (thinking)    
1. I love God. 
2. I love Angels and the ocean.
3. I love the sound of Rob Thomas' voice
4. I love to wear arm socks in the winter
5. I hate to carry a purse. I carry anything that looks NOT like a purse.
6. I love scarfs and turtle necks. 
7. I would eat spaghetti every other night if the kids would let me.
8. I would eat all the cheesecake in the world if It wouldn't make me super fat or die of heart disease. 
9. I love chocolate. Have a stash just for those crazy urges. Dark is the best. 
10.I love to smell things unless they stink! hahah
11.My whole life I have loved everything Victorian.
12.I love garlic.
13.I would rather look at earth tone colors than bright pastels. 
14.Dislike the color purple and baby blue. 
15.I eat ice cream with a fork. And recently I have changed my preference from Ice cream to Frozen custard. OMGOODNESS its so good. 

Now I will decide who I will choose to send this award to... 

First I choose Kristen @ <a href="http://graphicdesignconfessions.blogspot.com/">Confessions of a Graphic Design Student.</a> She is a very lovely young girl and a very talented up and coming artist. She is goofy and very serious at the same time. I think you will like her. 

Second I choose Kate @ <a href="http://creativedegenerate.blogspot.com/">Abstract Ramblings of a Creative Degenerate</a>  Kate is a very talented artist I met on a web site where artists share their art. I met her a couple of years ago and I have loved her ever since. She is my British Buddy! Go to her blog and see what she is painting. Right now she is not blogging a whole lot because she is a "mummy to be". But I have faith she will return soon and dazzle us all with her wonderful artistic talents. 

Third I choose Carol @ <a href="http://www.artmusedogsharethecreativejourney.com/">Art Muse Dog ~ Share The Creative Journey</a>. I met Carol through Blog Frog. She blogs about many things. Many of her posts have really made me slow down and think about things and I appreciate it more than she knows. 

Fourth I choose Angela @ <a href="http://tractorenvy.blogspot.com/">Just A City Girl With Tractor Envy</a> I also met Angela on Blog Frog.  She makes me laugh! If you share the same sense of humor.. I know you will laugh with me on this one. :)   

Hope you all have a great day!
