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

Fires In Oklahoma

This is not the greatest weekend in Tulsa Oklahoma area. We have some crazy wild fires buring. Homes are being evacuated and burned. It's really sad. I thought all was saved when I saw lighting coming from the direction of the fires... Unfortunately the frontal winds made the fire worse and shift its position and it did not rain much if at all. I am hoping that maybe you who is reading this today can send a prayer asking for rain with less winds and lightening and spare all those who are in danger of losing their homes and lives. 

I painted a little bit more tonight. I picked up a painting that I really did not want to finish and ended up finishing it. I also did some changed to another one that I had thought was finished. I just did not like the stones it the picture so I went ahead and changed them a little.  I have been making little notes for my artist statement also. I think that is going to take me a couple more days! It's not an easy task. I thought it was going to be but I was very wrong! :) 

So here is the little painting that I worked on tonight and I feel is finished. 

My cell phone camera really stinks! It seems like they are going to come in very clean but then when I look back at them - fuzzy. When I make my own art site I am going to get them all scanned so they will be perfect. Since this is just my blog I think it will be alright for now. :) 

Thank you for coming in and looking at the work and praying for those who are affected by the wildfires here. XO Frankie
