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

Summer is here! And I need to prepare for it. Mentally!

I am not really looking forward to the heat this summer. It is coming! Last year I was miserable. I fell into a bit of a depression and was suffering from extreme allergies for the first time in my life. I couldn't go to the store or anything. I felt so stupid. What is also upsetting when you are like that is that people tend to avoid you! They think that you are sick or something but you are not. Just suffering from allergies. It seemed like the summer was worse than ever. The heat seemed to affect me twice as much as anyone else.  I feel so sorry for those of you out there have to deal with allergies. Thankfully this summer it just happens off and on and doesn't last for very long and my depression is not bothering me right now. Very happy. I am working on making sure I stay happy and find the positive in everything so that this summer is bearable. I know that may not make sense to some of you - but it really does make a difference. If you find the negative constantly in everything then everything will suck no matter if you once loved it before. I have got to stay positive. 

PS sunblock helps too! :) Actually makes your skin feel cooler and then you don't seem to get so hot so fast. Well that is my personal experience anyway ;) 

Be safe this summer! <3 XO
